Schaltbau GmbH Group
The Schaltbau GmbH Group develops and produces connectors, snap-action switches and contactors as well as electrical components such as toggle switches, master controllers and driver desk equipment for a broad range of applications in the rail sector and industry. The Italian subsidiary SPII specialises in fully integrated driver's cabs for railway vehicles.
Schaltbau GmbH connectors are widely used in the communications sector, in railway transportation technology, in industrial trucks and generally in the field of mechanical engineering. Snap-action switches are key components particularly in the door systems of railway vehicles, a field in which Schaltbau is world market leader. Contactors are required wherever high-voltage applications need to be switched. They are installed, for example, in battery-driven industrial trucks, emergency power systems for telecommunications facilities and data centres, in the traction units of locomotives and electric trains and also in a wide range of applications in the renewable energy sector.
The Group’s main production sites are located in Velden and Aldersbach (Germany) and Saronno (Italy) as well as Xian and Shenyang (China). With a total of eight subsidiaries, two representative offices and over 60 sales partners, the Schaltbau GmbH Group is locally present in practically all key international markets.
