Founded in 1790 by Johann Dietrich Schmidt in Sprockhoevel-Westfalen Germany by the Schmidt family who were farriers and swordsmiths. His son was Peter L. Schmidt. He gave the company to the son, and the son came up with the trademark logo. In 1841 the company moved to Elberfeld Germany. They had a world exhibition in London in 1851 where they showed steel, iron, and brass tools including screw taps, files, gimlets, nippers, hammers, vises, shears, planes, saws, locks, scales, hindges, taps, and skates. Another in Paris in 1855 where they got a bronze metal for their saws and files.

In 1875 Carl Kämmerling joined and started working on exports and was in charge of England sales. Later he left to open C.K. Tools in London. His son, Wilhelm Kämmerling, joined C.K. Tools and later took over (in 1935 upon Peter's death) Peter L. Schmidt company. The two companies merged within a short time frame. In 1943 all the locations of the company were destroyed in the war, and were rebuilt in 1947. In 1954 the company transfered to Pwllheli Whales. Today the company is called Carl Kämmerling International and is one of the biggest employers in the area.”
