Effective October 1st, 2020, Team Henrich & Krall GmbH (Team H&K), a member of the Schneider Group, will merge into the Schneider GmbH & Co. KG. The full range of products will be continue to be available through Schneider and existing customers will be fully supported.
In July 2013, Schneider acquired the shares of the optical equipment manufacturer Team H&K, known for its automated solutions for deblocking, cleaning and tinting. Team H&K continued operation as an independent company.
After managing director Jürgen Krall left the company in 2019, the Team H&K operations have been restructured.
In May 2020, the management board decided to merge Team H&K into the Schneider Group in order to move closer together and effectively combine the know-how and expertise of both parties, leveraging synergies. In addition, production efficiency will be streamlined.
As a consequence, the production site in Dreieich will be closed effective October 1st, 2020, and production will be moved to the Schneider locations in Fronhausen and Quotshausen. The joint team will work on new development projects and future-oriented products.
