The company

The company Gebr. Steinhart is an innovative manufacturer in the candle industry.

Our highest priority is the development and implementation of new trends, the permanent adherence to our high quality standards as well as the cooperative partnership with our clients.

We look back on a long tradition, but without losing sight of the future.

The business areas of our company cover up all domains related to the use of candles and wax products.


In 1924, Otto Steinhart founded the company Gebr. Steinhart. In 1930, the business moved to its present location. In 1956, the heirs of Otto Steinhart – Siegfried, Walter and Helmut Steinhart – took over the company.

Because of the permanently rising need of space, caused by the increasing number of workers and employees as well as the growing production capacity, adjoining properties were bought over the years and the company area was expanded step by step.

In 1982, the business was extended one more time, when there was built a large, modern storehouse in the adjacent town Niederraunau. The freed space in Krumbach has now been used for the production.

On January 1st, 1995, there was another generation change. The brothers Peter and Michael Steinhart took over the management of thecompany. The ascending demand for hand-decorated candles finally led to the founding of a production facility in Poland in 1998.
