The Company in Profile
The seals we produce are used in almost every car around the world. Other demanding industrial applications also benefit from our know-how. With around 1,100 employees, our family-owned company from Niederwinkling operates five production sites on three continents and supplies customers worldwide. Our product portfolio includes precision seals such as O-rings, profile seals and composite parts. We develop and produce the necessary elastomer compounds ourselves.
In the six decades since Wallstabe & Schneider was founded, we have developed three core competencies:
We manufacture close to where our customers are, bringing them added value and enable them to benefit from short delivery routes.
We reliably seal important components for
automotive and industrial applications.
In this way, we ensure safe usage and prevent
pollution of the environment caused by leakages.
We act according to the principles of economic,
ecological and social sustainability.
