Bay City was founded in 1975 and is today one of the most important pillars of the Schmidt Group. As one of the leading service providers in Europe, the company group is networked around the world, covering practically every area of ​​the textile, shoe and bag industry.

The brands CHIEMSEE, OKLAHOMA DENIM and OKLAHOMA Jeans offer high-quality collection goods and top-fashion trends. In addition to being a textile producer, Bay City has not only well-known national customers in its portfolio, but is also an internationally successful and growing company with family and hanseatic roots. As a private label company, Bay City is successful in the development and production of customer-specific fashion and product programs and specifically addresses the needs and requirements of customers and partners.


In addition to trend-oriented in-house collections, the focus of our design department is the design of individual self-branding programs for customer-oriented labels.

During product development, we create closed product concepts according to programs, themes and trends. Together with the customer we select, vary and adapt these concepts in form and quality to the requirements. We can react quickly and flexibly to short-term desires.


Depending on the item / price / quality / delivery time, the appropriate production country is selected from the range of our international procurement markets in Europe or the Far East.

Designers and technicians create the appropriate production specifications, which include all graphic and technical information for the foreign manufacturer.


Dispatch marks the start of our proven freight and warehousing logistics that brings the goods, with the help of TSL Textil Service & Logistik GmbH, flawlessly to the customer. Whether for hanging textiles, single items, lounger materials or box goods, we can offer you:
  • storage
  • physical control
  • quality assurance
  • goods preparation
  • finishing (ironing, topping, dolls, tunneling, labeling)
  • picking
  • delivery
as well as the service "Floor Ready Merchandise" for sales preparatory measures such as pricing, labeling and store-related packaging of cartons or hanging goods. Altogether, our space of 16,000 sqm and 12,000 meters of picking area on five levels plus additional capacities in Kaltenkirchen and Steinfurt ensures a smooth flow of our customer service.


Our "never out of stock" programs with EDI connectivity and the possibility of cross-docking provides a special service. NOS includes a complete service package from design to quality-assured production and textile processing to logistical planning and complete, immediate delivery.

In consultation with our customers, we can create an NOS concept directly tailored to your needs and make your inventories transparent through order processing via e-mail and a standardized EDI-Fact connection.


The merchandisers responsible for purchasing monitor the production according to all requirements on site. Ongoing production monitoring and quality assurance, as well as the continuous monitoring of compliance with all environmental, social and legal requirements are of central importance to us.

From the delivery of the goods to the dispatch, each product is controlled throughout. Quality control is carried out according to international guidelines. The quality assurance process is completed with our standardized final product inspection.
