In the course of the general discussion about the lack of parking lots on motorways, the WDR published a report on the MFDS Smart Parking System of Wilhelm Schröder GmbH. Focus was on how information about free parking areas can be generated at highways and connected to the road users, especially the truck drivers.
Important guests to the A45 rest area Sauerland-West. The two politicians NRW Minister of Transport Hendrik Wüst and the CDU-member of the Bundestag Dr. Matthias Heider received a practical insight into the MFDS technology. Managing Director Kai Okulla explained the vehicle detection and the information spread via smartphone.
The research project "InVerSiv - Intelligent Transport Infrastructure for Secure Networked Driving in the Megacity", in which Wilhelm Schröder GmbH participates in the project consortium, is now available on its own website.
On 11.07.2017 Kai Okulla, managing director, and Alexander Zuchowski, Director Sales, received in Bamberg a special award.
Wilhelm Schröder GmbH has applied for and has received a development project of the EU to transfer the current developments in the area of traffic engineering to the requirements of the entire EU and its Member States. In the SME instrument of the Horizion2020 program, a feasibility study and an elaboration of the markets and possible customers abroad are carried out together with our consultant "Hans Eßer und Partner".
Only a strong team achieves success – thanks to our employees, we can count ourselves amongst the leading suppliers of metal-plastic / hybrid connections.
Since the founding of our company in 1924, decades of experience and developed knowledge have helped our employees to continually grow and have developed us into the company that we are today – the specialist for metal-plastic connections.
The bundled effects of synergy, like the interplay between metal and plastic in hybrid technology, give us the necessary edge in meeting our customers' demands and making our customers stronger.
From the small part of a door lock component, hybrid solutions for vacuum cleaners to parts of the cover of a Bluetooth control unit all the way to parts relevant for safety in automobiles. Our component solutions and system structural components are used in the interior, exterior as well as in the chassis area, whether it is a design component with refinement of the surface (painting, chroming, speckled / grained) or bearing components in the axle area, steering, engine mount, headstock, mounting bracket, stop bracket and much more all the way to complex air suspensions (suspension struts) made out of plastic or plastic metal – with us, everything comes from a single source. Because we do not just manufacture your products in accordance with customer demands but also offer our customers a value that pays off through our value creation potential analysis. The savings are often made up of a combination of product optimisations, that is, efficiency through appropriate material symbiosis, paired with weight reduction. It is our goal to create and manufacture products with best cost strategies with which our customers can further expand their market leadership in global competition – we stand for cost reductions through product innovation.
Our long-term customers from the automobile industry, "white goods" as well as the electronics industry and mechanical engineering appreciate our employees' expertise when it comes to solving difficult problems. Normal contract production is everyday business. But the challenge of improving parts that already exist through optimisation is one that we will gladly take. Sometimes we achieve optimisations through the selection of other materials or the reduction of them; sometimes by changing the structure or by eliminating individual components or through the integration of functions. That means that we add components in a production step (the main process), therefore reducing unnecessary process steps and unnecessary work operations – we make your components and system more streamlined, lighter and economical.
We would be happy to be at your side as a technical adviser / developer in the product development phase. Through close cooperation with research institutes and institutes of higher education, we offer you a better value in terms of academics and productivity. Tool production in our subsidiary "schnitt+form" is specialised in computer-aided 3D construction and the manufacturing of highly precise pressed and injection-moulded tools. Short paths between the creation and process testing as well as process maturity that pay off. We construct and, upon request, also maintain external tools as part of the customer's order – tool service and maintenance is the basis for effective production and creates trust in new products.
Contact us – it will be worth it.
