We take you to your destination


Around the world, mobility is in a state of upheaval. It is not only becoming more efficient and connected, but above all more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Together with our customers, we are working to make electromobility even more attractive, to build vehicles that conserve resources and are safe, and to drive forward digitization on the rail and the road. Whether for passenger cars, trains, electric buses or hydrogen trucks - with our expertise in the development of suitable materials and components as well as in machine and systems design, we are doing everything we can to help you and your business move forward. 


Bundled know-how in mobility

Mobility is our passion - and has been since Schunk's beginnings. What began in 1913 with carbon brushes for motors in streetcars and intercity trains led to our entry into the automotive industry in 1928, and thus into an industry that Schunk continues to support today as a reliable development partner and supplier. We rely on innovative technologies and customized solutions to meet your needs. From rotor bandages for high-performance electric motors, to intelligent condition monitoring in railroad technology, to solutions for reliable testing of lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells - under one roof we offer you a broad product and solution portfolio that puts you in the best possible position for the mobility of the future.
