Join us on your road to success.

It is not our tech­nol­o­gy that has made us suc­cess­ful but the peo­ple who made this tech­nol­o­gy pos­si­ble. SCHERDEL owes what it is today to its employ­ees. This is rea­son enough to make respon­si­ble peo­ple join the SCHERDELfam­i­ly in the future as well.

Regard­less of whether you are a school stu­dent, uni­ver­si­ty stu­dent, career starter or expe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­al, we offer a wide range of oppor­tu­ni­ties for almost every pro­file to work cre­ative­ly and inde­pen­dent­ly and help shape the future of mobil­i­ty. With­in the com­pa­ny, the sat­is­fac­tion of all our employ­ees is of par­tic­u­lar importance.

Our values

Our val­ues and objec­tives Progress from tra­di­tion: Since more than 130 years, we have been work­ing accord­ing to this slo­gan. Our cor­po­rate phi­los­o­phy and man­age­ment prin­ci­ples in par­tic­u­lar show the con­ti­nu­ity by which our com­pa­ny is characterized.

Owner managed

We are ahead with our head – and in our hearts still the old.

As a medi­um-sized, inde­pen­dent and own­er-man­aged fam­i­ly busi­ness, we con­tin­ue to live in accor­dance to the val­ues and prin­ci­ples of the found­ing fam­i­ly and at the same time ben­e­fit from the cre­ativ­i­ty of our employees.

Peo­ple are the focal point of all the entre­pre­neur­ial think­ing and actions of SCHERDEL­Group. We trust in more than 6800 employ­ees, who sup­port us in the long term with per­son­al respon­si­bil­i­ty, com­mit­ment and pro­fes­sion­al com­pe­tence and achieve their per­son­al goals in our con­tin­u­ous­ly grow­ing fields of application.

We are char­ac­ter­ized by flat hier­ar­chi­cal struc­tures and a famil­iar atmos­phere. Nev­er­the­less or because of this we belong to the hid­den cham­pi­ons inside our indus­tri­al sector.


We cross bor­ders for a bet­ter view on the world.

Region­al attach­ment and glob­al, com­pre­hen­sive think­ing are not at all con­tra­dic­to­ry at SCHERDEL. If you want to help shape the future, you must have the courage to cross bor­ders and have vision. Mean­while we are rep­re­sent­ed at 35 loca­tions in 11 coun­tries world­wide, but we have nev­er for­got­ten our roots. How­ev­er, our head­quar­ter and some of our plants are still locat­ed near to Mark­tred­witz in Upper Fran­co­nia, the town where the com­pa­ny was founded.

Only with the help of a world­wide net­work a glob­al knowl­edge trans­fer can take place in order to man­age the cur­rent and future chal­lenges of our time. Flex­i­ble and open-mind­ed employ­ees are essen­tial for this — whether for short or medi­um-term sup­port of one of our sites abroad or even for the devel­op­ment of a new plant. Of course, the fam­i­ly cir­cum­stances of the employ­ee are an impor­tant issue for us in this context.

Value oriented

We stand up for our values.

We want to ful­fill our eco­log­i­cal and social respon­si­bil­i­ty towards our envi­ron­ment and the future gen­er­a­tions. We are com­mit­ted to the respon­si­ble use of raw mate­ri­als and ener­gy and we try to opti­mize all process­es with regard to their envi­ron­men­tal compatibility. 

We sup­port our employ­ees in achiev­ing their per­son­al goals with­in the com­pa­ny. A trust­ful work­ing atmos­phere and the oppor­tu­ni­ty for per­son­al devel­op­ment at work, as well as the long-term com­mit­ment of our employ­ees are impor­tant to us.

Future oriented

We leave room for new ideas and cre­ative minds.

We work accord­ing to our cor­po­rate phi­los­o­phy: „Each work­er is his own employ­er at his work­place“. We guar­an­tee all our employ­ees a broad and respon­si­ble cre­ative scope with per­for­mance-ori­ent­ed remu­ner­a­tion. The fact that we have cho­sen the right path is proven by the inno­v­a­tive pow­er of our employ­ees, which enables us to devel­op con­tin­u­ous­ly and think ahead. We want to con­tin­ue to push the steady growth of our com­pa­ny in the future.


We pro­mote an open and hon­est coop­er­a­tion for a con­fi­dent atmosphere.

Whether in prod­uct devel­op­ment togeth­er with our cus­tomers or in direct con­tact with our employ­ees, a clear, open and hon­est com­mu­ni­ca­tion is a mat­ter of the heart for us and an indis­pens­able basis for a trust­ful coop­er­a­tion. Reg­u­lar feed­back meet­ings between super­vi­sors and employ­ees are an impor­tant com­po­nent of a valu­able cooperation.
