The Schoenberger Group
We combine tradition and innovation, never losing sight of our core competencies. Our company has been around since 1878, making us true experts in the area of screens and solar protection. But we’re still fast-paced: With a total warehouse area of around 50,000 m² (25,000 m² of which in Germany) and a company-owned logistics center, we produce and sell premium screen products delivered throughout Europe and Asia.
Thanks to our more than 400 employees at four locations and on two continents, as well as an annual total revenue of 84 million USD, we are in excellent shape to meet the requirements of online retail.
Traditionally, our headquarters in Hohenschäftlarn near Munich are the heart of our company that continuously provides pulses in close collaboration with the colleagues from our latest location: We have been active in Duisburg since 2017 with our colleagues from customer service, sales and product management. In our production site for made-to-measure products in Toruń, Poland, as well as our Chinese location in Hangzhou by Shanghai, our colleagues are also dedicated to developing our brands. This is how we always ensure maximum quality on the pulse of the time.
1878 to today: the history of the Schoenberger Group
The company was founded in 1878 by Michael Schönberger as a wood weaving mill for sun blinds in the Bavarian Forest, with his son Hugo taking over in 1934. In 1952, the company relocated to Hohenschäftlarn, and in 1962 son-in-law Richard Mayer and his wife Anita (born Schönberger) assumed management. Their son Michael Mayer (master in shutter and Venetian blind construction) became the 4th generation owner of the family-operated business in 1996. Four generations of the Schönberger family have put their know-how, passion and hard work into the company: a long-standing tradition we remain committed to today.
