2024 is undoubtedly a special year for schülke, because we are celebrating another anniversary - 135 years of schülke. Founded by Rudolf Schülke and Julius Mayr in 1889, schülke has established itself today as an internationally successful company and is one of the market leaders in the fields of infection prevention and hygiene solutions. For 135 years, we have stood for pioneering spirit, innovation and the highest quality.
We have always built on reliable and long-term partnerships. It has always been our aim to act with foresight in order to offer our customers innovative and competitive products and services that protect the interests of all parties involved. And we are proud to be able to look back on some special milestones and successes in our long company history and to preserve this pioneering spirit as an integral part of our corporate DNA to this day.
Since the company was founded, schülke has continued to develop. The adaptation of our business activities to current circumstances, the changing needs of our customers and the requirements of the industry has made a significant contribution to the many years of success of schülke. From our point of view, however, it is continuity above all that creates trust. This consistent continuity is the highest quality and consistent effectiveness of our products, which have always been our top priority.
And we are continuously developing our product portfolio and designing it in a way that conserves energy and resources. Because for us, protecting people and the environment are inextricably linked. We want to continue to set a good example in our industry and set new standards.
The driving force behind our comprehensive commitment is our mission "We protect lives worldwide". We draw inspiration and motivation for ourselves as a team from this. We recognise the opportunities and challenges of tomorrow and act with foresight. We prove that quality, effectiveness and sustainability can be combined - and with great conviction we will continue to take responsibility for current and future generations in the year ahead.
