    Corporate history and origin
    Integrated Design since 1977

    SSP AG (formerly known as SchürmannSpannel Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH) looks back at 40 years of success. Today SSP AG  is one of the leading Integrated Design studios in Germany . The headquarters is based in Bochum (Germany) with more offices located in Berlin (Germany), Karlsruhe (Germany) and Frankfurt a.M. (Germany).

    SSP AG  currently employs approximately 100 specialists from different disciplines.

    In national and international competitions SSP AG  has won more than 40 prices and a number of awards for its exemplary architecture and innovative working methods. So far more than 1,400 projects of varying building types and sizes were successfully completed.

    The company was founded in 1977 as SchürmannSpannel Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH by the engineers Friedrich Schürmann und Helmut Spannel in Bochum (Germany). In 2002, to simplify a generational change, the company´s legal status was changed into the stock corporation SSP AG. SSP is the short form for SchürmannSpannel, honouring the founders.

    The leaderboard of SSP AG is headed by the architects Matthias Kraemer (managing director) and Thomas Schmidt (chairman).
