About us

Welcome to Schuchmann

Based in Hasbergen (Germany), Schuchmann is an expanding, owner-run family company in its second generation. For more than 30 years, the team has committed itself to improving the quality of life and environment through the provision of innovative aids for people, especially children, with special needs.

Today, this main focus of our work remains unchanged. We currently employ around 100 specialists and staff who work with passion and expertise to continuously improve and further develop our products. Needless to say, the maintenance of international quality standards acc. EN ISO 9001 and DIN EN ISO 13485 also define our products and services.

Schuchmann is the market leader in its field in Germany and our products are exported world wide through international distribution partners. The R&D and production departments are under one roof, a great advantage for Schuchmann.

Another benefit and strength is the adaption of our products to the demands and real needs of the different countries, and to fulfill the requests for solutions of the specific markets, customers and end users in the UK. Now we will establish Schuchmann UK for the direct sales and service of our products in the UK market.
