What makes us strong

In 1983, schell connect started as a specialist in the design and construction of progressive, welding, stamping and bending tools. In the meantime, we have developed into a manufacturer of high-quality connectors, contact elements, stamped and bent parts, as well as composite and assembly parts for the automotive, telecommunications and electrical industries. Our LSA connection systems, which we manufacture ourselves, have proven to be particularly successful. As a medium-sized company with a family background, we always pay attention to customer proximity, intensive consultation and a pronounced sense of service. At our plant in Schongau (Weilheim-Schongau district), we employ around 30 people, whose performance and know-how ensure a high level of quality for our products and our services.
