About Us

The power to give freedom

Free are those who are open to others. The “&” of the Schubert & Salzer Group is a symbol for their openess to the needs of customers, for the link of suppliers and employees to the customer through technology. Today, the Schubert & Salzer Group, together with its stakes, comprises 14 companies, five of which produce in Germany. The Group’s oldest company has been in existence for 650 years. Schubert & Salzer was founded in 1883. In 1927, Schubert & Salzer erected a foundry with a bell tower in Chemnitz. In its uniqueness this building is among the great architectural landmarks of German industry. Together with the symbol “&”, this building represents a symbol for the love of freedom of our group. The maxim that the constructor had engraved in the bell in those days still stands today as the motto for our management:

“Never let your strength and your will wither, to rise from better to the best. Only when your spirit always yearns for progress do you live, ’tis only those who live that create!” Schubert & Salzer has always weathered the ups and downs of history, because the company has always striven for the better and always has had the power to change.

The drive for freedom is a guiding principle for our group. This is on par with our management philosophy of providing freedom to all units of the company and its employees and of encouraging creative development in our sense of freedom. It is the task of Schubert & Salzer GmbH, as parent company, to provide the framework of organisation for the group and to give freedom to the ideas of all the participants in the creative process. This freedom of creative diversity serves the purpose of meeting the needs of our customers.
