Schenck Process Group

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).
