Everything for your track

One name. One promise. Worldwide.

In 1895, Hans Goldschmidt invented the Thermit® process, providing the basis for safe, comfortable and efficient railway mobility which up to the present day continues to define the international standard for the welding of rails. Accordingly, for the last 125 years the company has been defined by the innovative spirit of the inventor and a tireless pursuit to develop new technology and improve existing solutions.

Goldschmidt has developed beyond its core competence Thermit® into a forward-looking full-service provider. With its internationally proven know how and visionary thinking, Goldschmidt is a trusted partner and intelligent problem solver where the focus of our daily work is the success of our customers.
