More than 90 years of expert knowledge and competence
Our company was founded in 1924. Today our core business covers on the one hand the distribution of rope-end-fittings for conveyors, especially elevators, chains, lifting gears and cranes and on the other hand fastening guide rails of all kinds and castings of all qualities, in particular for the mechanical engineering and rail car industry.
Originally founded as a trading company by Walter Süther and Hans Schön it was focussing on gear for the permanent way, for shunting and fastening guide rails.
By the end of war – Walter Süther had meanwhile left the company – Hans Schön besides trading took over several commercial agencies of stamp shops, foundries and one rope factory. The commercial agencies more and more got the upper hand and the trading became almost unimportant.
In 1973 Hans Schön handed the company over to his son Herbert. Herbert Schön again forced trading and achieved increasing success with items for rope and chain accessories as well as forgings and stampings, which are mainly used in the materials-handling technology.
In 1981 Süther & Schön was converted into a limited company, which now attends to customers all over the world with today 25 employees and an extensive stock.
On 1st of May 1993 Dr. Dirk Brandis joined the company, which he manages since January 15th, 2002 as second managing director.
