Why Engel

Engel connect parts and components, we especially combine ideas and people

We not only connect parts and components, we especially combine ideas and people.

Our offer for industry & commerce

Schrauben Engel has everything in connectivity technology

Starting with a wide range of products for industrial and commercial customers to fuly integrated and customised logistics, we are always looking for synergies for our customers. These arise, for example, for our trade customers through the wide range of services that we provide to industrial customers. Our industrial customers in turn benefit from savings that we can pass on to through our international procurement of large quantities for trade, e.g. also in the direct container business.

These synergies are the pillars that create win-win situations.

Quality values - People & sustainability

Schrauben Engel is proud to be an independent, medium-sized, family owned company.

This is an important part of the solid foundation on which all our activities are built - because we do not seek short-term success, but think long term.

This means that we enter into the kind of relationship with our partners, that as reliable in good times as well as difficult ones. An open and honest approach is just as self-evident as the fact that we live sustainability in social and environment. The constantly increasing quality of our products is as only one of many aspects that directly and positively affects our customers reliability and sustainability.

This gives us the certainty that we can meet future challenges as courageously, consistently and confidently as our path has shown so far.

Warehouse Management System – Launch

On the weekend of 2016-10-1 to 2016-10-3 our Warehouse Management System viad@t was successfully implemented by the company viastore. The WMS manages every process in logistics which when looked at more closely makes it a stock-administration system.

At the same time, the new quality management software CASQ-it by Böhme & Weis was also launched. With CASQ-it, a modular quality management system, we are able to oversee every aspect of our quality management, quality surveillance and quality securance from all angles. By interfacing with our ERP-system (central company software) the WMS and CASQ-it are “working” together.

The first weeks with the WMS in so called “real-time operation” were a huge challenge for everyone involved in the project. As expected, in the first days the WMS had one or the other, both little and big, surprises for us. Several processes required some readjustment and dealing with the new technology had to be learned and turned into a routine.

Without the outstanding commitment of our employees the successful launch of the WMS would not have been possible. We don’t take this dedication for granted and see it as proof of what a great team we have. 

Social involvement

„Engel connects“ – we do not only apply this company motto to our business!

Both in individual projects, as well as by regular promotion of charities - not only as a company but also as individuals. For example every year we donate the proceeds from our Christmas raffle to children's homes.

We have been able to contribute to the support of the following organisations and bodies, among others:
