SHM-Stegherr is a medium-sized German mechanical engineering company with experience and expertise. 80% of our special and series machines go abroad. This is our claim: We do not merely sell a machine to our customers, we offer them the solution. The complete package of manufacturing process, software, automation and service. The system with added value.
We have been building machines for trade and industry since the 1960s - and we are continuously developing them. For just as long, we have been dealing intensively with our customers' processes. Our knowledge, experience and customer proximity form the basis of our engineering services and technology. Multiplied by our passion for more efficient solutions, equals the potential that makes our customers become regular customers - and winners in the competition.
We have always focused strongly on customer needs. That’s why we don’t just sell you the machine from our manufacturing program that best suits your requirements. We manufacture it individually for you and equip it precisely with those units, spindles, tool holders and clamping systems that will get you the decisive advantages in production. We also adapt our software optimally to your requirements. An expansion of your machine for new processes is possible at any time. With our tailor-made automation concept, we integrate your machine perfectly into your production.
A good consultant is acquainted with the processes and the production environment of his customer. He listens carefully and recognizes the actual need. He focuses on the advantage and added value and advises against the superfluous. He relies on honesty. His first thought is not selling, but building a long-term relationship based on customer support. A good consultant is a professional from the field, a designer, fitter, mechanical engineer. He will promise you the right thing - but not too much. Because HE’s the one who will implement it later. Where can you find this advisor? With us, of course.
The founder of our company was a master carpenter, machine dealer and inventor. He and his team developed what was requested from him in the 1960s but was not available on the market. This is how the first Stegherr machine came into being: an “edge banding press” for the door production. Innovation impulses came repeatedly from the demand for solutions for new tasks and from their good eye for optimizable production processes. This has continued to this day. Innovation is our daily business - on the way to the peak of our technical evolution.
Our machines are known for their quality, precision and service life. Many Stegherr machines are still in use after 30 or 40 years. There are reasons for that. True to the motto "Quality can only be guaranteed by someone who has it in hand", we have always consistently manufactured all components in-house. This includes all machine parts, the pneumatics, the machine frames, the painting, the electrics including control cabinets and control software. This is what makes our machines high-quality investment goods with an enormous lifespan. And it enables us to react quickly in customer service and development.
We secure your investment with regular service intervals. Our service quality proves particularly impressive in case of emergency. A call or an email from you - and a clearly defined process is started instantly. Your contact person will take up all your information. The emergency plan and the solution concept are developed in a team of specialists. The fault can then either be remedied remotely or by your team on site - with the support of our technicians. Or a specialist from our company will set off for your place with the necessary equipment. In any case, you can lean back and rely on it: SHM Stegherr will definitely handle it.
Our work does not end when your machine is on the way. One of our installation specialists will come to your place and take care of the correct installation and commissioning on site. He has been intensively involved in the construction and coordination of your machine in the weeks before and knows it inside out. Installation, start-off, adjustment, sample production and sign-off will be done in record time. The machine operators will be trained during and after installation, so that you can go into production without restrictions shortly after installation.
Many of our employees have been with the company for a long time. The fluctuation tends towards zero. This testifies to a good working atmosphere - and it promotes know-how. Our people are not only competent - they are also incredibly flexible. They can respond to any special request and do it - regardless of whether it is a technical solution or transport by air freight including customs documents. Our tenor is "We can do it!" Everyone is pulling together. That inspires all of us. That’s what defines us.
