History & philosophy
Success made in Germany
Innovative products, a high level of quality, intensive customer focus and – last but not least – reliable and competent employees: In the 50 years of company history, Erich Schäfer GmbH & Co. KG has made an excellent name for itself in drive and conveyor technology.
What began as a one-man operation in 1950 is now an internationally active company implementing customised solutions in the fields of conveyor technology, drive technology, crane manufacturing and electric machines with 150 employees. The objective of providing complete satisfaction to every customer, whether large or small, is at the centre of all activities today as back then. Training and education for all employees is becoming increasingly important. The resulting continuity in product and service quality, in conjunction with a high level of flexibility, has been one of the most outstanding characteristics of Erich Schäfer GmbH & Co. KG for more than half a century. And this continuity has made the company one of the market leaders for the sale of electric motors and conveyor systems.
Nothing is impossible
Meeting customer requirements at the highest level – that is the strength of Erich Schäfer GmbH & Co. KG. With products that adapt to customer requirements rather than the other way around. These may be motors or conveyor components from renowned manufacturers or specially designed products which are customised to the individual requirements of the customers by Erich Schäfer GmbH & Co. KG. Or we might simply be replacing a defective part in a customer plant. At Erich Schäfer GmbH & Co. KG, challenges are there to be overcome. In a way that suits the customer.
Individual technical consulting.
Comprehensive consulting is at the centre of all activities. Only once fields of application, performance requirements and targets have been analysed and fixed in detail, we draw up detailed suggested solutions in close cooperation with the customer.
Customer-specific project planning.
Before starting any specific tasks, the customer receives an individual list of all planned steps, including a detailed cost breakdown. The customer is king at Erich Schäfer GmbH & Co. KG – also with regard to transparency.
Professional installation on site.
Depending on the requirements, a professional team is available to the customer for skilled installation, conversion or assembly of the desired solution, in Siegen or at the customer site.
