Facts and philosophy

The performance of every single individual counts - but we can only win by being part of a team. We are completely convinced by this and that's how we organize things at SCHUNK. We never demand that anybody does more than they are able, but they are not expected to do any less either. Because our goal is to deliver top performances. And we can only do that if different talents and individual gifts are optimally combined. We are there for each other and treat each other with respect and appreciation. That is what makes us successful. Over the last 25 years we have grown by 12% per year on average despite all the crises.

Pioneering spirit and a sense of family

We set global standards with our pioneering spirit and perfection. What Friedrich Schunk started almost 70 years ago in a mechanical workshop in Lauffen is now being continued by his son and grandchildren with the same sense of responsibility and vision. SCHUNK is a family-owned company which currently employs more than [[mitarbeiteranzahlEN] people. With 30 subsidiaries and over 250 sales representatives, we are at home all over the world. At the same time, we are locally connected and almost all of our production is done in Germany. You can be sure of that.

Company philosophy

Achieve more together

It is not machinery and materials which decide our success but people whose ideas and commitment ensure that we always stay one step ahead of our competitors - in terms of both quality and precision and innovation and customer care in our family-owned company. That is why our focus is always on people. We are always open to new ideas and we appreciate those who take initiative. In short, we trust the skills of the people who want to further develop themselves. Are you one of them? Then let's do it together!

Our business units

How can fish fingers, mini salamis or crumbly biscuits be moved from a conveyor belt into packaging without damaging them? How can workpieces for wind turbines weighing over 700 kilograms be clamped so that they can be machined efficiently from all sides? How can micro-optical components for photonics be machined and positioned with total precision? At SCHUNK we love questions like these. And we do not stop until we have found the perfect solution.
People who know "their" machines and technologies by heart, and love working on the details are just as important as people who like to always discover new "topics". What are your strengths?

A range of tasks - room for talent

The most important thing is for the team to work hand in hand, concentrating each individual talent and commitment on what really counts - the result.
