More than 135 years of Strobel Quarzsand.

A long tradition.

From 1876 to the present, four generations of the Strobel family have led the silica sand plant with foresight, determination and great success.

The founder Johann Jeremias Strobel (1840-1909) agreed a mining contract with the Royal Bavarian Forestry Administration on September 9, 1876 and started the production of industrial sands in Freihung.

On the turn of the 20th century, his son Johann Woldemar Strobel (1874-1952) created the preconditions for the industrial production process.

Johann Strobel (1916 – 2002) took over the company in 1952 production and increased production considerably. In addition, he introduced fire-drying of the processed silica sands and developed current extraction sites in Gebenbach and Großschönbrunn area.

Since 1994, Lisselotte and Günter Forster lead Strobel Quarzsand GmbH in the fourth generation with great dedication. Today approximately 70 skilled and highly motivated employees work here.
