Steinzeugwarenfabrik / Stoneware manufacturer
August Josef Corzelius (b.28/11/1836 – d. 7/11/1901)  married Thekla, the daughter of Johann Josef Gerhards and took over his father-in-law´s factory at Bergstraße 4, in 1878. August Josef Corzelius died here  in 1901, but only after the death of Thekla Corzelius in 1909, did their second son, C/Karl Johann Corzelius (b.21/06/1875 – d.4/01/1949) take over his father’s factory. Werner (12/11/1911 - 30.12.1988), the son of C/Karl Johann Corzelius, took over the business from his father in 1945 and in 1954 the company's name was changed to "Werner Corzelius". In 1966, the company purchased some machinery, moulds & inventory from J.W.Remy. Again in 1971, they purchased some moulds from Eckhardt & Engler, (Werner was a cousin of the Eckhardt's by marriage). The company is still in existence today.

The other branch of the Corzelius family is: A. Corzelius - Menningen / Paul und Hans Corzelius / Roger Corzelius
