Market position in many business areas
Scheidt & Bachmann is one of the world market leaders for Systems and Solutions for mobility. We-as a family business- are proud to be supporting transportation systems with our products and keep millions of people in motion every day all over the world.
Scheidt & Bachmann has been successful for generations
- Because we can follow our own entrepreneurial vision as a family business
- Because we have competent and engaged employees that see a problem as a challenge and will not rest until it is solved.
- Because our customers appreciate it.
Family Friendly Company
The commitment of our employees is incredible. For time sensitive or urgent matters everybody is willing to pitch in- but this should not happen at the expense of your personal time. Therefore flextime is provided for all employees whose position allows for it. The employee can decide to an extend how to structure his/ her day.
The fact that we are aware that personal issues arise and need special treatment is not a given in all companies. That again makes us a different!
As a family business we are aware of the enormous responsibility we have to our employees and their families. The collaborative way to lead by our Management is exemplary for that! It is also reflected inm our very low employee turnover rates!
The company has been lead by the founders family for five generations and many of our employees have made Scheidt& Bachmann a family business – with different generations of the same family working for us.
Professional Orientation Days as Part of School Partnerships
We offer all interested school to participate in one of Scheidt& Bachmanns Professional Orientation Days. After learning abotu the company and the future posibilities- such as the many varied positions available, e.g. Sales Engineer, Software Developer, Lawyer or Business we take the students for a tour of our facilities. The participants are able to get an insight into the production processes. Students thus receive impressions that may be relevant to their future orientation. It is our great concern that young people learn firsthand about the requirements of trainees and graduates in the real world.
Our Apprenticeships set excellent standarts!
Our 700 sq.meter technical training workshop is home to 4 full time licensed Trainers/ Educators as well as 100 Apprentices in the fields of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, mechatronics% mechanics. And as if that is not enough- we also have many additional modern training and classrooms at their disposal. Our Apprentices generally graduate at the top of the class due to our inhouse refresher courses. To date 28 Apprentices graduated at the top of all german aspprentices according to the IHK (Industrie- und Handelskammer). The outstanding efforts of our Apprentices are rewarded with an annual trip. That too makes us different!
Training and Recruitment of the young talents
Given demographic changes and the anticipated shortfall of qualified employees/ laborer in Germany and Europe as a whole, Scheidt& Bachmann feels it is important to invest in the education, training & professional development of the next generations as it directly affects our marketability. Scheidt & Bachmann therefore reiterates its traditionally strong commitment to vocational training of young people.In 2010 25 german youths started their apprenticeships in one of 6 jobs. But we also invest in the education of the young in other countries. In slowakia we will be training 10 Cooperational Students for the year of 2010 and in France we will train 2.
Development to Specialists & Leadership
Many of our former students return to to Scheidt & Bachmann after successfully completing their studies. These students get hired for professional positions and mangement and thus contribute to employee retention.

Many Employee Anniversaries- Another benefit of the low Employee Turnover
The cooperative leadership style at Scheidt& Bachmann is credited with the low employee turnover rate. Due to the low turnover rate we get to celebrate many employee anniversaries every year- often for folks that have their 25- 40- and even 50- year service anniversary!
We do not just honor this loyalty on the anniversayr itself, but each and every year as part of a festive anniversary celebration for the employees and the families of this years retirees. Our company choir accompanies dinner of a select menu. Here you can feel that Scheidt& Bachmann IS Family.
