THE COMPANY HISTORY

The success story of Rudolf Schäfer KG is closely linked to the events in Munich and the Schäfer family. Since 1922 the company has grown steadily, both with regard to the number of employees and customers. It has been an exciting journey, leading up to today – with the management of the Rudolf Schäfer KG in the third generation and our own company building. We enjoy looking back at our milestones and are already looking forward to the 100th anniversary of Rudolf Schäfer KG.
