About us

50+ years of creativity and dedication

These are only two of many important attributes that characterise our work at CEMO and make us so different from other companies in this field. Thanks to our facilities in Weinstadt, Schnelldorf and France, we have been able to develop into one of the most important companies within Germany and abroad in this sector.

We operate as a manufacturer of GRP products and offer a comprehensive range of specialist products and services to a great number of industrial sectors. This includes services such as the CEMO Academy and practical advice.

We are
  • pioneers in the area of modern transport and storage container technology
  • the German market leader in legally compliant complete on-site filling stations
  • providers of professional solutions for the storage of substances hazardous to water
  • a manufacturer of formed components made of fibre-reinforced composite materials
We supply
  • traditional transport and storage containers for a wide range of applications
  • customer-specific GRP moulded parts
  • heating oil tanks supplied to end customers within 72 hours
  • grit boxes with our specially-designed vandal-proof lids and a comprehensive range of winter service products
  • and much, much more …


Our focus is people.

Being able to respond rapidly and effectively to our customers’ varying market situations requires flat organisational structures and coherent teamwork. Our traditional philosophy – as internalised and lived by everyone at CEMO – has always focused on people. This applies equally to our customers and colleagues.

In product development, it is very important for the parties involved, i.e. the customer and us, to maintain close, personal contact, as this facilitates the incorporation of all requirements right from the start. Furthermore, successful product development requires an atmosphere of trust, matching quality standards and common goals.

High quality and teamwork always match!
