SCHÜCO MILESTONES IN COMPANY HISTORY
The history of the company Schüco started with a small family business in the German city of Porta Westfalica (or East Westfalia, about 70 km west of Hannover). On January 1, 1951 Heinz Schürmann founded the company Heinz Schürmann & Cо. In three years the company found a new home in a bigger city, Bielefeld, and in 1963, the company became a part of the technology company Otto Fuchs KG under the short name Schüco (acronym of Schürmann & Cо).
This was the moment when Schüco discovered new business horizons as one of the leading corporations of the industry. In 1964, Schüco Design was established, a system developer and supplier of aluminium facades for the furniture industry. In the 80-s, Schüco added metal-PBC-U-windows to its range.
