In 1881, mechanical engineer Carl Schenck established an iron foundry and weighing machine factory in Darmstadt, Germany. In 1894 the business became a limited company (GmbH), and his son-in-law Dr. Georg Büchner and his nephew, engineer Emil Schenck, joined him as partners.

The company designed its first innovation, the registration device - a card printer for the steelyard balance that shows an easy-to-read weight. It was patented in 1887.

The next patented invention followed soon after in 1891: the automatic steelyard balance for narrow-gauge and suspension track vehicles. It won the gold medal at the World's Fair in Paris in 1900 and in the space of a few years made the company's name overseas.

In 1900, Carl Schenck became the chairman of the first supervisory board.

The first weighfeeders began to be built in 1930. The growing pace of industrialisation offered enormous possibilities, and the company began supplying batch scales for concrete mixing plants and roadmaking material, rail car body weighing equipment for express trains, and the first illuminated dial balances. In 1931 these were equipped with a numerical printer which would later be approved for calibration.
The first rail and road vehicle scales to be produced without the standard load relief facility were introduced in 1933.

In the 1950s, the company also began to grow through acquisitions. From an early stage - as early as 1960 - the company chose to focus on the modern trend of electronic weighing systems.

The 1970s were a time of international development and expansion. Finally, Carl Schenck Maschinenfabrik GmbH was transformed into Carl Schenck AG, making it a public limited company. In 1984 the company was listed on the stock exchange.

After taking over AccuRate Inc. in the USA, the company adopted a new structure based on business segments. This signalled the beginning of Schenck Process as an autonomous company.

In 2000, Dürr AG acquired a majority holding in Carl Schenck AG and in 2004 the remaining shares were acquired through a squeeze-out.

In 2005 the company was spun off from the former Carl Schenck AG through a management buyout, and since then Schenck Process GmbH has been an independent company.

The company has grown significantly thanks to various takeovers and almost tripled its sales within a few years. This consistent growth strategy won the company the 'Strategy Award for Mechanical Engineering Companies 2007', which was promoted by the consultancy firm Oliver Wyman and the business journal 'Produktion'.

Today, with over 3200 employees and a turnover of around €600 million, Schenck Process is one of the world's technology and market leaders in applied measuring technology. At 33 Locations in 22 countries on all five continents, it develops innovative solutions for weighing, feeding and vibration technology processes, high-tech systems and components for weighing, feeding, vibration conveying and screening. This intelligent measuring technology is used in industries such as cement, steel, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and transport.

In terms of quality, there can be no compromises. If you leave quality issues until you have to respond to demands, you will have no time to touch things up.

Schenck Process takes a different approach. We bring the future to the here and now. With products, services and developments which also satisfy future requirements. Today. And this how we have always worked.

It isn't a contradiction. It's the philosophy the company uses to always keep one step ahead in terms of quality.

For more than a century we have been renowned for our high-quality and long-lasting products offering outstanding value for money. But this is just one side of the quality standard we practise. Perfect service, integrated management, efficient organisation, perfectly harmonised processes and flexible responses to changes on the market and customer requirements round off our quality promises.

We make it our number one goal not only to satisfy customer requirements and requests but to exceed them. For example, we use an integrated management system to ensure that we are always taking note of customers' needs and requirements and planning and implementing them in all areas of the company. If possible, we do this before we are obliged to take action.

The organisational structure and management system deployed by Schenck Process is being constantly checked to ensure process and product quality. Alongside regular internal audits, we task well-known companies with conducting external audits for us. This all guarantees fantastic support from perfectly trained experts and that a product quality that is second to none. In more specific terms, we firstly check the compliance of processes with our documentation and secondly we develop offers to give our customers considerable added value. This allows to us raise quality levels and cut delivery and response times, which also form part of the service that is intrinsically tied to our product quality standards and are verified by a series of external certificates.

Your safety and that of our staff is our number one priority. We believe it is crucial that we provide you with important information about your visit to our assembly halls before you arrive.

We would ask you to read the following safety notices to familiarise yourself with our safety precautions.

We will provide you with a safety jacket, that clearly identifies you as a visitor for your visit to our assembly hall, before you enter the assembly areas.

Should you deviate from the prescribed route, for example to perform acceptance of our products, you will have to wear safety boots. If overhead work is being performed, for example in vibratory equipment assembly, hard hats will also have to be worn.

We will of course provide you with this protective equipment when you enter the final assembly area. Please feel free to bring your own safety boots or head protection if you prefer.

Thank you for taking the time to read these safety notices. We wish you a pleasant journey and look forward to your visit.
