This motto that the Schubert & Salzer owners of the time had engraved into the Schubert & Salzer tower bell in Chemnitz continues to be significantly important today, 140 years after the company was founded. When it comes to strategic considerations, the Schubert & Salzer Group has always adapted to the market requirements and welcomed new challenges.
Our way of thinking and working is oriented to the long term. We focus on the long-term security of our family business rather than short-term optimisation of revenues. The traditional values which characterise our long company history serve as a benchmark, provide orientation and also show us how to work in the future. Today, Schubert & Salzer Control Systems GmbH, Schubert & Salzer Feinguss Lobenstein GmbH and Schubert & Salzer Data GmbH all trade under the umbrella of Schubert & Salzer Holding. The “&” in Schubert & Salzer symbolises our openness in terms of customer wishes and the connection of our employees and suppliers with our clients through technology.
„Never slacken your will, never shy from the test,to improve yourself from better to best. Only those souls who seek constant improvement are truly alive, only they who create, truly live!“
