SCHECHTL THROUGH THE YEARS.
We look back on over 110 years of SCHECHTL
From the blacksmith’s workshop to the top of the world’s leading manufacturers of swivel bending machines and plate shears.
Josef Schechtl sets up his own business and opens a blacksmith workshop in Roßhart near Edling.
Josef Schechtl designs and builds the first Schechtl bending machine, model KS1. It consists of 2 railway rails and a welded-on flat steel and works so well that word quickly spreads to other trades. The first plate shear, model SJS, soon follows and the beginning of a successful mechanical engineering company is made.
Josef Schechtl Jr, the eldest of nine children, takes over his parents business and moves the factory to its current location in Edling. The Edling headquarters offers room for expansion and for the continuation of the Schechtl company’s success story.
