About us

The company

Founded in 1892 as a mill, Abel + Schäfer can look back on a long tradition marked by innovations. In 1958, Fritz Claus Schäfer launched the production of baking products under the KOMPLET brand name.

He was one of the first manufacturers in the world to take this step. The formulated premixes are promising and enjoy strong demand. In 1982, Abel & Schafer, Inc. USA was formed to bring the same high quality standards to the growing markets in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central and South America. Today Abel & Schafer, Inc. USA manufactures over 200 products in its modern manufacturing plant in Ronkonkoma, New York.

Today, the group of companies Abel + Schäfer / KOMPLET is one of the leading companies in the sector, maintaining a commitment to tradition and innovation into the future.

The term “tradition” means more to us than just many years of experience in the production of baking premixes and baking products – it also describes the care when handling valuable raw materials and a strong quality orientation, and both are highly important to us. Our search for new and more effective testing and processing techniques contribute to the continuous improvement of our products. Our early orientation towards new, international markets has equally advanced our innovative strength.

“Tradition and innovation” are closely linked with our company history. They have significantly shaped our success in the past, and still do so today.
