We have been producing technical springs, stamped parts and wire bent parts of the highest quality for many applications and industries for our customers for more than 60 years.

1953

1953 - Foundation of the Josef Schumacher Federnfabrik

The “König & Schumacher Federnfabrik”, co-founded by Josef Schumacher Senior in 1948, turned into “Josef Schumacher Federnfabrik” in 1953. The company specialised in the “production of small and micro springs in precision finish”.

1965

1965 - Move to Attendorn-Ennest

More than a decade later, in 1965, the company was then relocated to the current location in Attendorn-Ennest. More space was needed to meet the growing order situation. Besides, the town of Attendorn was developing the industrial estate Ennest. The company “Josef Schumacher Federnfabrik” was the first company to settle there.

1975

1975 - Josef Schumacher Junior & Michael Sperling join the company

Some 10 years later, in 1975, the son of the company founder, Josef Schumacher Junior, joins as Managing Director, as well as Michael Sperling as Executive Officer with binding authority. Both of them lead the company over the next 40 years as a team.

     

1978

1978 - 25th anniversary

On the occasion of the 25th company anniversary in 1978, an article is published in the magazine of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, telling of the success of the company „Josef Schumacher Federnfabrik”.

1980

1980 - First trade fair presentation

“Josef Schumacher Federnfabrik” exhibits for the first time at a supplier fair in The Netherlands in 1980. To this day, we have maintained long-standing customer relations across Europe, of which we are very proud.

1989

Extension of the company building

Space in our production halls is once again running out. In 1989, our 2nd production hall is added, and our warehouse is extended.

1998

1998 - First ISO 9001 certification

Finally in 1998, the company receives its current name. Since then, we have operated under the name “Schumacher GmbH – Federn- und Stanztechnik”. We also received the first ISO:9001 certification in 1998.
