SCHUNK has its roots at its headquarters in Lauffen/Neckar. The company was founded here in 1945 by Friedrich Schunk as a mechanical workshop. Under the management of his son Heinz-Dieter Schunk, SCHUNK evolved into a global player and the world's leading technology supplier for robots and production systems. Today, the company is run by the third generation, siblings Kristina I. Schunk and Henrik A. Schunk, the founder's grandchildren. SCHUNK is firmly anchored in its home region as a socially committed and responsible employer.
Also in a global age we hold the values of a family-owned company high to always keep direct customer contact and to take over personal responsibility.
We not only want to meet the expectations of our customers, we want to exceed them. With a 100 percent final-control policy, with continuous improvement efforts and with the proverbially SCHUNK "Caring Culture" that makes customer needs our own.
SCHUNK offers more - more willingness to face challenges and to move ideas forward, more activity to invest in innovative technologies, more flexibility to solve the questions and tasks of a fast moving future. That's what we stand for.
The most important cornerstones of our company philosophy are, for us: pioneering spirit, a caring culture, and reliability.
