Schunk Celebrates 20 Years in North America

SCHUNK founded its United States facility in 1992 and has been manufacturing toolholding products and providing sales and support to local customers from the Morrisville, North Carolina facility for the past 20 years. This has lead to unparalleled success for North America, which spurred the development of two more entities, SCHUNK Canada and SCHUNK Mexico, in 2006.

Covering North America with a team of dedicated regional sales managers together with an extensive network of distribution partners and original equipment manufacturers, SCHUNK delivers on the promise of “Superior Clamping and Gripping.”

SCHUNK is headquartered in Germany and has over 1,900 employees who all bring knowledge, skill, and commitment to the company. SCHUNK combines the features of a family-owned company, a renowned technological leader, and a global player, all in one.

SCHUNK is close to its customers with subsidiaries and distribution partners in more than 50 countries, who all provide comprehensive and expert advice. “The first 20 years in the US have been remarkable. Through a dedicated team of engaged employees focused on customer satisfaction, the United States has become a home market for the SCHUNK group,” said Henrik Schunk, Managing Partner, for SCHUNK GmbH & Co. KG.

“SCHUNK USA has helped over 35,000 customers become successful by providing technologies that increase machine efficiency, provide flexibility, and create a competitive edge.”
