The Company in Profile

We develop and produce seals that are installed in almost every car worldwide. Demanding industrial applications also benefit from our know-how. With around 1,100 employees, our family-owned company from Niederwinkling operates five production sites on three continents and supplies customers worldwide. Our product portfolio includes precision seals such as O-rings, profile seals and composite parts. We develop and produce the necessary elastomer compounds ourselves.

In the six decades since Wallstabe & Schneider was founded, we have developed three core competencies:

Development Competence

We find custom-fit solutions because we understand our customers' application requirements.

Manufacturing Excellence

Our state-of-the-art, digitally networked machinery manufactures products of consistently outstanding zero-defect quality.
Global Presence
We manufacture at our customers' sites, increase local added value and score points with short delivery routes.

Our Mission
