Schmalenberger is setting a great example in the development of technologies that protect precious resources. The company is going down the route of “sustainability” due to its sense of responsibility to the environment, but also with the aim of minimising running costs for owners. Green technology is an integral part of the company’s product philosophy.

Sustainability is visible to users by the efficiency label which Schmalenberger uses to guarantee improved performance and energy use. It is used on products which are already well ahead of the game, featuring wear-resistant materials and motors ranging up to efficiency class IE4. The use of straightforward designs is another example of Schmalenberger taking a step in the right direction. Components which are easy to dismantle can be recycled and reused to protect scarce resources.
