who we are
Traditional foundation for state-of-the-art success
With technical innovations and a keen sense of what customers need, Klaus Schiebel has transformed his family-owned company in Vienna from a regional mechanical engineering firm into an international active technology company.
Backed by our own offices and more than 30 distribution partners, we currently attend to customers and projects in more than 50 countries all over the world and provide secure jobs for more than 100 employees.
All SCHIEBEL products are developed and produced at our company headquarters in Vienna. This ensures unsurpassed quality and adherence to all safety standards.
A new era
The rise in global demand for our actuators was the impetus for us to expand our production capacities and put the company on a new course.
We modernized our offices, built a fully automated warehouse and invested extensively in our machinery, thereby laying the groundwork for further development projects. In parallel, we are making great strides in digitizing the company.
One of our strengths is to develop new innovations that always keep us a step ahead of the overall market. Our development work focuses on user-friendly technology, high quality, safety, and appealing design.
The unique SCHIEBEL failsafe technology, in particular, is a favorite for use in sensitive applications.
All SCHIEBEL products can be expanded quickly and trouble-free with the already integrated software. This approach is less susceptible to errors and more economical.
We work very intensively and closely with our customers, as they they know best what they need. To achieve optimum outcomes, each side brings its expertise to bear in the development process.
Priority is given to customized solutions that guarantee the customer maximum safety and reliability as well as flexibility.
This collaboration with our customers has forged long-standing business relationships and given rise to countless innovative solutions.
In product development, we work hard to advance the intelligent networking of mechatronic systems. Our center of competence specializes in perfecting IoT concepts and constantly tests new cloud solutions and WLAN standards. Thanks to support from a multitude of relevant field bus systems, our solutions can be integrated into a wide variety of control systems.
One of the focal points of our R&D is predictive maintenance. It identifies potential problems in advance and points out ways of resolving them.
Our internal efforts are concentrated on digitizing our production processes, pushing the use of robots and implementing various tools and new work methods to immerse ourselves in progress.
Our corporate social responsibility
As an Austrian company, we let our every action be guided by our responsibility to society and the environment as an employer, industrial company and trainer.
Apprentices and interns
We have been training apprentices for different occupations for more than 30 years. As a family-owned company, the future of young people is a matter close to our hearts. The Austrian Economic Chamber (WKO) has named us a top-quality training company for the second time in succession. In 2020 we expanded our range of attractive apprenticeship occupations as a valuable contribution towards helping the Austrian economy recover after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Women in technology
Women comprise twenty percent of our workforce. We are striving to make training in technical occupations attractive to young women in order to boost the percentage of women in these fields even more. In recognition of our efforts to train young women, we were awarded the amazon Award in 2015 by Sprungbrett, an association dedicated to improving opportunities for girls and young women. Equal pay is not a mere slogan at our company – it is reality.
People with special needs
Supporting and encouraging people with special needs is equally important to us. We employ people with communication disabilities. On their behalf, we are encouraging the use of sign language with their colleagues.
People inspire technology, and so we are convinced that team-building fosters inspiration and innovation. Everyone is welcome at our company – regardless of origin, gender, sexual orientation or age. From the hiring process onward, we make every effort to find a suitable place within the organization for our employees to give them the best possible prerequisites for professional development.
As an Austrian company, we focus on creating regional value and collaborate mostly with Austrian partners. We take steps to protect the environment wherever we can. One example is our use of photovoltaic systems to produce energy.
Science and research
Our collaboration with selected universities enables students to work with us on practical projects and gives us an additional way of researching state-of-the-art products and software solutions.
