Schüco - a name that represents one of Europe's most impressive economic success stories - is a premium supplier and a driving force behind innovation for pioneering, green technologies for the whole building envelope. Since its establishment in Bielefeld, Germany, in 1951, the company has come a long way from being a metal fabricator to now providing green technological solutions.
It now offers a comprehensive product portfolio ranging from window, façade, door systems, and efficient solar energy and solar heating solutions, through innovation in intelligent energy management. It is this broad range which indicates a superior technology strategy to always view the building as a whole, in order to exploit its energy potential to the full. An invaluable contribution to climate protection - after all, buildings accounts for 40 per cent of the world's energy consumption and therefore also emits a large proportion of CO2 emissions.
