Providing logistics, storage and workstation solutions around the world
SSI SCHÄFER is a German owned company which operates in the logistics, storage and conveying, workstation design and waste management sectors. The firm was founded in 1937 by Fritz Schaefer as a firm specializing in the manufacture of sheet metal products. In 1948, the company moved to larger premises in Neunkirchen-Salchendorf where it focused on manufacturing boxes for the transportation of goods. After the sons of the founder took over in the 1950s, SSI SCHAEFER began to expand rapidly, establishing a dominant role in the production of specialist transport containers for items like nails and screwdrivers, as well as fixed storage boxes for use in workshops and warehouses. By the 1960s, SSI SCHÄFER had started to expand overseas, opening subsidiaries in Switzerland and the UK, and this expansion has continued, with an international presence as far afield as Australia and the USA. Since the 1970s, SCHAEFER has pioneered catalogue based shopping for its products, and this innovation has spilled over into its online marketing. It has also moved on from just producing boxes to becoming a world leader in logistics systems. It works with clients to create ergonomic, efficient workspaces that meet their needs, and provides turnkey logistics solutions for complex organizations. Schaefer now operates a global sales and support team, and works on all continents to supply its expertise. SCHAEFER shop is located in Berlin.
