History

A history in motion

The SCHEDL Group has already a number of milestones behind it. However, even though the company and the industry have been subject to constant change, some principles that applied in the past still apply today – and these include a focus on the highest quality standards in complete wheel assembly. Of course, there have been many changes, especially in terms of technology. In recent decades, our company has developed into an internationally active organisation that employs around 1,000 professionals in various fields. Today, we are represented in 14 different locations around the world. Our headquarters are located in Neutraubling (Regensburg), and our assembly factories for tyres and wheels are spread all over the world. Join us for a short time travel journey through our company history.
