The Schako KG from Kolbingen
Founded in 1928 by Ferdinand Schad, the company initially manufactured surgical instruments and components for the music industry. In 1950, the family business also began producing auxiliary stoves, hot-air heaters and heating products. From 1960 ventilation grilles were added and from there it was not far to the entry into air conditioning technology. Today, the manufacturer Schako occupies a leading market position in ventilation and air-conditioning technology. The products manufactured by Schako KG are mainly sold in Europe and the Middle East. Before the developed products go into mass production, they are thoroughly tested in Schako’s own laboratories. This guarantees the quality and functionality of the individual products.
awards from Schako KG
Schako KG received the important LüKK trust award twice. One for their high-quality fan coils and the other for their particularly efficient filter technology in the kitchen area.
The company from Kolbingen also received the industry award for its good conceptual planning support and excellent service. The company’s energy-saving and variable fan coils are preferred in care facilities, hotels and office buildings.
Reven, a Schako subsidiary from Sersheim, received the coveted trust award for the company’s patented X-Cyclone® separator, which can clean exhaust air containing oil and grease almost 100 percent without filter fleece. This separator is mainly used in the mechanical engineering industry and in canteen kitchens.

Schako covers all areas of ventilation technology and produces: fire dampers, smoke extraction dampers, filter outlets, louver dampers, air-water systems, swirl diffusers, ventilation grilles, control devices, sound insulation and controls.
The employees of Schako KG
In total, the company has about 500 employees at the locations in Kolbingen, Messkirch, Budapest, Zaragoza and Ankara. The family business is managed by Rainer and Marcus Müller and the plant manager Roland Schröter.
In order to get highly qualified employees for the technical area, who master the special, complex production processes in the eight different departments up to the final production, Schako KG invests considerably in the training of its own employees.
