Founding of Scheuch COMPONENTS GmbH
Scheuch COMPONENTS GmbH is founded in order to strengthen the devices and components business.
Acquisition of American companies CAMCORP and Schust
Scheuch acquires the American ventilation and environment technology specialists CAMCORP and Schust, each with over 70 employees.
Founding of Scheuch LIGNO GmbH and acquisition of LBH GmbH
In order to devote more attention to the growing wood division, it is spun off from the company and Scheuch LIGNO GmbH is founded in Mehrnbach. Scheuch also acquires LBH GmbH, based in Wolfsegg, which has been producing high-performance specialized parts for plant construction since 1986.
Scheuch as a global full-service provider
Around 730 employees from all over the world work across two production sites and six sales subsidiaries. As a full-service provider, Scheuch has extensive expertise in extraction systems, dedusting, pneumatic transport, radial fans and exhaust gas and flue gas cleaning systems. Jörg Jeliniewski now manages the company alongside Stefan Scheuch.
Company handed over to Stefan Scheuch
Alois Scheuch passes the company on to his son, Stefan Scheuch.
Further significant innovations such as emc technology and the ligno filter range are developed. The world’s largest filter plant to date is installed in the cement industry.
New company building for around 500 employees
A company building with office space measuring 3,800 m² and production space of approx. 15,000 m² is built to accommodate a workforce of around 500 employees.
Start of construction on new site and important developments
Construction begins on the new site in Aurolzmünster and research developments continue apace. Scheuch enters the electrostatic precipitator segment. Plants for flue gas cleaning and exhaust gas cleaning also join the product range.
Around 200 employees and turnover of 300 million schillings
The number of employees has doubled to around 200 people in the last nine years and turnover has doubled in just five years to 300 million schillings. In the 1990s, Scheuch starts to expand globally and founds a series of subsidiaries.
Patenting of impulse cleaning system and standardization of fans
Alois Scheuch has the impulse cleaning system for filter bags patented. Every filter plant is unique. Starting with standards for fans, Scheuch now begins to concentrate on producing as many variants as possible from as few individual parts as are necessary. Despite taking steps towards standardization and streamlining, implementing specific customer requirements remains a priority for Alois Scheuch.
Around 100 employees and turnover of 85 million schillings
The company has around 100 employees and is proud of its technological progress. This also has an impact on turnover, which increases from 15 million Austrian schillings in 1971 to 85 million just nine years later.
Discovery of chemical and steel industry and equipment for the metal and industrial minerals industry
Scheuch starts supplying products to the chemical and steel industry. One of the first deliveries to voestalpine is used in Albania. Scheuch products become international from this point on. The company also expands into the industrial minerals industry, which requires particularly high filter capacities.
In-house fan construction and first customers in the wood processing industry
Scheuch starts to build its own fans. The reduction in the dust limit values for companies means that Alois Scheuch quickly identifies the wood processing industry as a key target group and starts supplying products to regional joiner’s workshops. Every order is a unique and sophisticated work of craftsmanship. Circumstances mean that, when loading larger cyclones measuring up to 2.5 metres, the street has to be closed for up to two hours.
Handover to Alois Scheuch with six employees
Alois Scheuch Senior hands over his sheet metal fabrication business – with six employees – to his son, Alois Scheuch Junior, who takes the first step towards “Technology for clean air” by producing ventilation systems. The company’s first customers include the Siegl shoe factory and the hospital in Ried.
