Company history and philosophy of Schneider Druckluft GmbH


There are hardly any manufacturers of compressors and pneumatic tools in Germany who can look back on such a long tradition and corresponding quality know-how as us. Our strengths lie in the development of application-oriented compressed air system solutions, screw compressors, piston compressors, compressed air distribution and conditioning systems, as well as high-performance pneumatic tools. In the following read about the entire success story of our company.


1966 - Foundation of the business

The foundation stone for today's compressed air manufacturer was laid on 1 October 1966 in Ditzingen near Stuttgart.

1968 - Sale of mobile compressors
In 1968 mobile compressors were added to the product portfolio. Constantly oriented to the requirements of the trade, the core focus is on the sale and marketing of high-quality mobile piston compressors.

1975 - Foundation of Schneider Druckluft GmbH
With the foundation of Schneider Druckluft GmbH, the product portfolio was consistently expanded with compressed air devices and pneumatic tools and the compressor range was increasingly adapted to the needs of industry and trade.

1990 - Acquisition of compressor plant in Meerane (Saxony)
With the acquisition of the compressor plant in Meerane, new target groups with additional products such as stationary piston compressors and high-performance screw compressors in the compressed air sector could be conquered.

1991 - Purchase of the extension in Reutlingen
With the purchase of the extension in Reutlingen, the company realises improved processes in logistics and production in order to be able to provide customers, also in the future, with high-quality compressed air products and services.

1999 - Schneider Druckluft goes online
Schneider airsystems sets up its first independent website. For the first time customers can call up the entire range of services from compressed air generation to pneumatic tools of the company 24 hours a day.

2000 - Schneider Druckluft Service Center
In addition to excellent compressed air products, the Service Centre of the company is also an important success factor. The Schneider Druckluft Service Center was founded to provide quick and non-bureaucratic assistance to customers in the event of repairs.

2004 - Takeover of Schneider Druckluft GmbH by TTS Tooltechnic Systems AG u. Co. KG
In 2004 the TTS Group assumed a 100% share in Schneider Druckluft GmbH. With this strong company, the positioning is clearly in the area of the premium segment for professional users in industry and trade.

Dynamic and high-performance compressed air products for professional users from industry and trade - the brand Schneider airsystems has been representing this claim now for over 40 years.
