In July 1992, the Schaefer GmbH was founded in the area of Eisenach, Germany. The company started with two employees producing eccentric presses in a rented facility. Aggressive sales growth and favorable economic conditions all contributed to the need for major expansion eight years later. In 2000, the space was increased to 2000 sq. meters. The new space allowed to increase engineering capability as well as more manufacturing space.
Additional investments improved our fabricating capabilities. Today, parts are being manufactured on state of the art machining centers and CNC machines coupled with CAD for direct data transfers. This networking allows for efficient manufacturing using wire and sink erosion, 3- and 5 axis grinding and turning.
The Schaefer GmbH offers market-oriented system solutions. During manufacturing of the products, from design through production and testing, the project team is always in close contact to our customer. Quality assurance procedures, including pre-production sampling according to VDA, helps to meet the stringent standards of the automotive industry.
