Lightweight constructions have a long tradition with us in Friedrichshafen. A text excerpt from the Zeppelin Museum documents this historical background. "Airship construction in Friedrichshafen was the trigger for far-reaching industrial development. Engines, gearboxes, aircraft and numerous light metal applications ..."
Aluminium was the first material to be used on a large scale in airship construction. The use of aluminium profiles in particular revolutionised structural engineering. Materials for airship construction and aircraft development (Dornier) had to be lightweight, flexible and yet load-bearing and resistant.
The products from Schilling Gerätebau are also part of this 175-year-old technical tradition. More than 30 years of experience and development work with aluminium as a material, perfect workmanship as well as welding and joining technology at the highest level are the hallmarks of SCHILLING Gerätebau product range.
When mechanical engineer Martin Schilling took over the company FleiMa Gerätebau GmbH in 1999, he was able to fall back on the know-how of Josef Fleischer and continuously expand the area of individual solutions until today. Over the past 30 years, a company has emerged that now sells its products all over the world.
Schilling Gerätebau develops and manufactures products such asmobile aluminium gantry cranes, various articles from the field of lifting technology as well as individual custom-made crane systems with absolute quality standards. This is one reason why our products "made in Germany" are used worldwide.
So for us, too, a guiding principle of Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin applies to every customer requirement, who said: "You only have to want and believe in it, then it will succeed!”
