The company was founded in 1985 in Halle Westphalia as Heinz Gottschild Steuerungsbau. In 1990, the company was converted into a limited liability company (GmbH) and its business activities were expanded to include mechanical engineering.
Since that time Gottschild has been successful with innovative technologies for the optimization of production processes in furniture component manufacturing and has made a name for itself as a system supplier in the worldwide furniture industry.
In the beginning there was the challenge of the first customer in the field of mechanical engineering - a manufacturer of fronts in the furniture region of East Westphalia - to have the trimming of foil-coated 3D furniture fronts carried out by machine. The result: Since the beginning of the nineties, the first fully automatic trimming gantry robot has been in use there, now the forefather of the Gottschild CS series. A short time later, worldwide marketing of the newly developed technology began - today, Gottschild machines can be found all over the world. The customer file of Gottschild reads like a Who-is-Who of the worldwide leading furniture part manufacturers in Europe, the USA and Australia.
At the beginning of 2000 Gottschild developed the world's first disc brushing machine to remove the glue overspray on the backs of 3D furniture fronts. Based on this groundbreaking and proven technology, the further development to a polishing and sanding machine for lacquered high-gloss furniture fronts and Corian® followed from 2006.
Even though Gottschild GmbH has developed from a developer to a mechanical engineering company over the course of time, the addition of the name "Ingenieurbüro" (engineering office) has remained to this day as an indication of the high level of development activity. With the constant further development of the machines, Gottschild has set itself the goal of reducing manual process components more and more and thus continuously increasing the speed, quality and economy in the production of furniture components.
Today, production and sales are carried out in cooperation with Schröder Anlagentechnik GmbH & Co.KG. Through the cooperation and merging of the production of both formerly independent product lines, we are now able to offer you a customized individual solution for your production with our extensive product portfolio.
