Company - Who we are
As a medium-sized family run company, schäfer-technic gmbh can look back on a long business tradition. Founded as a forge in 1898, our focus has shifted over time. For almost 40 years now we have been producing road maintenance and road repair machinery as well as automotive manufacturing machinery in Fellbach. At the same time, we develop our own control engineering and offer services covering all aspects of our product range.
Our main focus is on bitumen processing machinery and units that offer high performance and exceptional processing quality.
Thanks to our close contact with customers, suppliers and bitumen producers, schäfer-technic machinery is always state of the art.
A professional team of over 80 employees ensures a smooth process in project planning, design and production, continuing to sales and after sales service. Every year, we offer apprenticeships in commercial and business management fields, which means we are ideally equipped to face future challenges.
Our stated aims are to extend and expand our long-standing cooperation with our customers and suppliers on a trusting and productive basis. We see quality, reliability and always being willing to listen as absolutely essential.
We look forward to helping you with your tasks.
The only thing that’s constant is change. That is why we are active in a variety of national and international trade associations and sit on numerous committees. For example, we participate in creating new directives and guidelines.
The trade associations benefit from our decades of experience and our customers get machine concepts that are more relevant to their day-to-day work.
Community involvement is really important to us:
schäfer-technic regularly supports a number of regional organisations.
