In 1912 the cooper Georg Speidel founded a business for the production of barrels. At the beginning, only wooden barrels for beer, wine and must were produced and sold regionally. In 1963 a GRP production (glass-fibre reinforced plastic) was added. Until 2004 GRP was used to produce multi-use barrels for agriculture, containers for wine and other beverages.
In the 1980s stainless steel became increasingly important. More and more stainless steel beverage containers were produced. In the meantime Speidel has become one of the leading businesses in the production of stainless steal containers for viniculture. Besides since 1996 Speidel also produced PE-containers in the so-called rotation method.
