Our History

A tradition of quality

Back in the late thirties, when a small Black Forest firm set out to make components for the region’s thriving clockmaking industry, no-one ever dreamed that this unknown supplier would one day become one of the most innovative and most competent manufacturers of high-performance drives.

The 30s

The 30s

Established in Eisenbach, in the heart of the Black Forest, as a supplier of components to the clockmaking industry

“Gebr. Schwörer und Co. Apparatebau und Feinmechanik” was founded in 1936 by brothers Oskar and Edwin Schwörer and their brother-in- law Josef Grieshaber in Eisenbach in the heart of the Black Forest. They started off manufacturing precision components for the booming Black Forest clockmaking industry – for a while at the family home and from 1942 at the present site. Their precision engineered parts were mainly used in cuckoo clocks.

The 40s and 50s

The 40s and 50s

Production aimed at satisfying basic needs and safeguarding basic supplies in the post-war period

After the war was over, the company initially made tobacco shredders, storm lighters and pasta machines. From 1946, the Schwörer family also manufactured timers for hair dryers and electric ovens.

Second generation takes over

In 1968, the company was taken over by cousins Wilfried and Egon Schwörer. The transition to the next generation coincided with the launch of new product lines. In addition to manufacturing speedo drives for two-wheelers, the company also began making customised parts which were built to spec for the automotive industry.

The 80s

The 80s

Development and design of drive solutions as production space is expanded

The eighties marked the entry into the systematic development, design and manufacture of gear parts and customised drive solutions. The emphasis was on developing and producing planetary gears tailored to individual customer requirements, for example in materials handling, textile machinery and building services. In 1986, the production floor space was increased with a new building to 4,250 square metres and the pool of machinery expanded. In December 1988, the company changed its name to GSC Schwörer GmbH.

The 90s

The 90s

Rapid growth and opening of the B&S Metallbe- und -verarbeitungs GmbH subsidiary in Zwönitz

At the beginning of the nineties, Egon Schwörer retired. The rapid growth during his later years in charge and the limited opportunities for further expansion in the Black Forest led Wilfried Schwörer to open a metalworking subsidiary – B&S Metallbe- und – verarbeitungs GmbH – in Zwönitz (Saxony) in 1993. Today, the company employs 110 highly qualified staff who manufacture precision machined parts on 5,300 square metres of floor space using modern, efficient technology.

Transition to the third generation

Dr Martin Schwörer’s entry into the company in 2001 ensured its continued existence as a family-owned firm. Tina Schwörer, Wilfried Schwörer’s daughter, joined him in 2006 as Managing Partner. After running the business for 43 years, Wilfried Schwörer withdrew from operational management in 2012. Since taking over at the helm, Tina Schwörer and Dr Martin Schwörer have been committed to moving the company forward continuously – and to maintaining our innovative vitality as we strive to design and implement customised drive solutions better than anyone else in the market.
