Infrastructure – we are well positioned.

Just like all the other divisions in the SCHÜTZ Group, SCHÜTZ COMPOSITES also possesses the ideal infrastructure for the development and production of its products. A 32,815 m² hall complex was specially built for the wind power sector, which houses all of the production steps under one roof.

The continuous transfer of knowledge across the SCHÜTZ Group and direct access to the expertise of the more than 200 specialist employees in the SCHÜTZ custom machine engineering and the CORMASTER aerospace sectors provides the best all-round conditions for ensuring optimum development and production processes.

SCHÜTZ COMPOSITES thus possesses the full range of manufacturing capabilities – from model construction through to the finished rotor blade – all at one location. Naturally, SCHÜTZ COMPOSITES also offers all of the individual steps in the development and production processes for rotor blades – from model construction through to series production – as individual services.
