Investment in sustainable values

Schofer has made a lot of investments in recent years, also to promote sustainability: In addition to energy-saving machines such as modern soldering ovens, new ventilation systems with heat recovery were installed throughout the building. Water dispensers with filters provide all employees with oxygen-enriched and cooled water free-of-charge.

Seit einiger Zeit im Einsatz ist eine Kreislaufkühlanlage, mit der die Umwelt geschont wird, da zur Kühlung der Löt- und Glühöfen kaum noch Frischwasser benötigt wird. Durch die gleichmäßige Kühlung der Öfen sind gleichbleibende Temperaturen gewährleistet und die Prozesssicherheit somit erhöht.

Schofer wird auch weiterhin regelmäßig in neue, nachhaltige Technologien investieren. Darauf haben Sie unser Wort.

Always something to optimise

In 2017, we comprehensively modernised our entire company building. An optimised work environment improves the quality of our products. For example, our entire production facility was switched over to LED lighting. This leads to daylight-quality lighting at every workstation while almost halving our power consumption.
