Company history

How it all began

TAS Schäfer GmbH is a family company with a long Tradition.

In the third Generation, we develop since 1961, innovative products for drive and damping technology. Here, we look back on a long history, Initially the company dealt with the production and Assembly of components for hydraulic powered roof supports, and was focused on the regional mining industry.

In the following years, the production of products of drive technology has been established and further developed. Due to the emergence of an industrial production for shrink discs and clamp sets the company's focus has shifted more and more to drive technology. Own products, such as, for example, the hydraulic shrink discs have been developed, and as a world-wide Patent pending. As a result, the TAS Schäfer GmbH, set global Standards in the area of the Friction contact.

Meanwhile, we supply together with our representatives throughout the world with innovative products of the drive and damping technology.

The long-term support of our customers since the first day for us in the foreground. Even if we, nothing has changed. Reliability and a high level of consulting expertise since the beginning of our main principles.
