Schunk Group

A global technology group with strong brands


Since 1913, the Schunk Group has made a name for itself as a globally active technology group. A name that is always mentioned when it comes to proximity to customers and their markets. Whenever there is talk of sustainable business success and practiced integration. And when it comes to transforming ideas and resolutions into pragmatic action.

We see ourselves as pioneering because we build bridges for our customers so that they can develop better products and conquer new markets with innovative technologies. Creative, because innovations are an essential part of our corporate culture. And collaborative, because customer orientation is lived by every employee of the Schunk Group. Day after day - for the benefit of our customers and our group members.
