In 1970, the company was
founded under the name
„Andreas Schilling Medizintechnik“, and began developing and
producing surgical instruments. Gradually, the company specialized
more and more in the electro-chemical marking of medical
instruments. Over the years, the Microdot and Laser marking techniques
were further developed to round up the product pallet.
Since then, Schilling’s various marking
techniques are used by many different
industry sectors around the world, such
as the automobile and aeronautical
industry, advertising material, kitchen
utensils, the tooling industry etc.
Today, Schilling Marking
Systems GmbH has over 20 employees and 28 successful distribution partners
worldwide! Of course, we always trade and decide by the premiss: Sustainable
business – that is to say, that over the long-term to economically remain in
competition in the global market and to maintain high standards of ecological
care and social justice.
