Schunk Group

Schunk in Heuchelheim - that stands for high-tech and more than 100 years of experience in materials expertise.

In 1918, the starting signal for today's Schunk Group was given at the Heuchelheim site just outside of Gießen, Germany. In a former local pub named Windhof, founder Ludwig Schunk and his employees manufactured carbon brushes for power transmission in electric motors. More than one hundred years later, this has grown into a global technology group - with more than 9,000 employees and annual sales of around 1.3 billion euros.

Solutions for the future

Heuchelheim is still the Schunk Group's most important and largest site today. Around 2,000 employees work here every day on technical solutions for the future. From graphite bipolar plates for fuel cells and carbon brushes for wind turbines to components made of sintered metal for state-of-the-art aircraft engines - the variety of applications and the technological standards for products "Made in Heuchelheim" are extremely high.

Together with the nearby sites in Wettenberg and Reiskirchen, Schunk is one of the largest industrial employers in the entire region. As a foundation-based company, the Schunk Group not only offers an innovative work environment, but also individual development opportunities and a wide range of offers for balancing family and career.
