However, the journey is not over yet. Our next goal will be getting the automotive certification, which covers other aspects of quality assurance and safe processes.
Our specialty are plastic parts made of various materials
Our specialties include the production of precise plastic parts from 0.1 grams to approximately 300 grams. These offers a wide variety of gears and drives as wells as parts of all kinds. Plastic is also a good substitute for metal by over molding individual metal components and turning them into hybrid, lighter parts as well as integration of mechanical functionality. High performance polymers like PEEK are well known and part of our daily work.
Secure existence of our family company through market diversity
In addition to the medical market, SKS AG also supplies other industries worldwide and is therefore broadly based and not dependent on one industry. A large part of our products goes to the building industry including sanitary installations and fluid handling systems. The machine and apparatus construction are our target markets as well as the electronics or telecommunication industry.
In addition to so much technology, there is also just as much personality
It all started with the foundation of the company in 1981 by Karl Steiner. With his brother-in-law, he started in a garage with two injection molding machines.
The company grew steadily and, like any business, experienced ups and downs. Today, our company consists of 45 machines with a clamping force of 30 to 220 tons. Around 100 employees work 5 days a week, some of them in 3 shifts. In case of high demand, weekend productions are also possible in order to be able to supply our customers on time.
From 1992, the company belonged only to the family Steiner and this is still the case today. The children were involved in the company from an early age and learned so much by doing until all three successors, namely Valerie, Michael and Lilian, were completely involved in the company. In 2021 Valerie took over the job as a CEO from her father. Michael remains in his long-time job as Head of Toolshop and Innovation as well as Lilian as Head of Business Development and Marketing. In 2022 all three siblings together took over the company shares.
