Schmidt Küstermann Building, Weld Quay, Penang

Schmidt Küstermann Building under restoration in 2012 (14 November, 2012)

The Schmidt Küstermann Building (GPS: 5.41682, 100.34399) at No. 2, Weld Quay, was once the offices of Schmidt, Küstermann & Co, a German trading firm in Penang. Having been trading in Penang since the 19th century, it was one of the oldest European businesses in George Town.

The office of Schmidt, Küstermann & Co along Weld Quay was built when the street was laid out following land reclamation, and occupied the plot between the Boustead Building and the Behn Meyer Building. It is one of the sites within the German Heritage Trail of George Town.
