Guntmar Schober, a toolmaker and business man, founded the knife grinding company Schober

The company was initially based in Weimarstraße followed by Senefelderstraße in Stuttgart from 1954 onwards.


First rotary creasing and cutting machine

The development of a rotary creasing and cutting machine in 1956 set a significant milestone in the history of the company. More than 3,000 machines of this type have been sold worldwide till now.


First exhibition and the start of the production of rotary punching tools 

In 1957 Schober attended its first exhibition in Lausanne (CH), which was a major international breakthrough in sales. 

One year later, in 1958, Schober started its production of rotary punching tools.


Relocation of the mechanical engineering department

The first cutting rollers and installation modules for the hygiene industry were manufactured in 1976.

In 1977, the company premises in Industriestrasse 2 were also acquired and tool production was relocated accordingly. 


Europe-wide sales network

In the early 1980s, NG tools with carbide punches and bushes were developed and sold for the endless industry, of which around 20,000 pairs are still in use today.

Over the course of this decade, more and more label cutting units were supplied. At this time, Schober already had a Europe-wide sales network and around 70 employees.


New building with 5,800 m2

In 1987 a building expansion was added to the location at Industriestraße 2 to increase the production area to almost 4,000 m² and to provide a showroom and office area of approx. 1,800 m². The development of tools and machines increased by leaps and bounds in all branches of industry. 


Foundation of the FMB

The company FMB was founded in Zwickau in 1991. 


Founding of subsidiaries

Expansion and extension

In 1999 Schober reorganized its production area and built a new building to house the manufacturing facility. This addition increased the available production area at headquarters to approx. 5,500 m². In the following years, several converting machines had been developed. Schober was able to strengthen its position as one of the worldwide leading suppliers of rotary die cutting, creasing and punching tools.


Schobertechnologies GmbH and Schober GmbH Holding

The Schobertechnologies GmbH was founded in 2010 and Schober GmbH was transformed into Schober GmbH Holding. In 2011 Schobertechnologies took over the operative business from Schober GmbH, a starting point of the next generation in company history.
