We make processes work. In all areas of industry. The world over.
The name Schenck Process is synonymous with more than 125 years of experience and a strong brand. Today, the company, founded as an iron foundry and scales factory, is one of the global market leaders in applied measuring and process technologies. Around the world, the company has 33 Locations, service centres and state-of-the-art assembly facilities, employing approximately 3,400 members of staff. More than 1,200 engineers work for Schenck Process around the globe, producing leading technological products with their special know-how.
What’s more, the company, which has been recognised as a “Top Employer for Engineers” for the 6th time, has keenly sought out an intelligent workforce ever since its foundation. Engineer Carl Benz, who later achieved fame as the pioneer of the German automotive industry, was the first technical employee of the Carl Schenck iron foundry and scales factory, founded in Darmstadt in 1881. Today, the products of Schenck Process cover a wide range of process engineering solutions in weighing, feeding, conveying, screening, automation and air filtration technology. Be it putting the right number of gherkins in a 370 millilitre glass jar, producing the optimum aluminium for a Formula 1 engine, blending the right material for a bridge construction or generating energy in a highly efficient and environmentally friendly manner – Schenck Process develops ultra-modern technologies for virtually all sectors of industry. The product range stretches from feeders for minute volumes used in the pharmaceutical industry processing 20 grammes per hour up to wagon loading systems with a capacity of 20,000 tonnes of coal per hour.
Furthermore, Schenck Process now delivers state-of-the-art software solutions. Five International Business Segments deliver tailor-made solutions for a wide range of requirements, including those in the cement and steel, chemicals, plastics, food and pharmaceuticals, mining, coal-fired power plants, transport and automation and service industries.
The Darmstadt site is home to the central research and development team as well as two state-of-the-art TestCenters. Staff in the bulk material TestCenter work to establish which feeders are best suited to which bulk materials. Our screening technology TestCenter on the other hand ensures that every raw material is optimally screened.
For a number of years, Schenck Process has been training young people for technical and commercial careers and students on dual degree programmes at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Mannheim (DHBW).
