Auerbach & Scheibe

At the turn of the 19th century industrialization gained more and more momentum. Lots of small businesses sprang up, including mechanical engineering factory Auerbach & Scheibe in 1873, the original company of what is known as SAMAG today. Soon after its establishment it moved up in the world and became a well-known manufacturer of boring and bending machinery as well as special purpose machinery.

Today SAMAG Saalfelder Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH has a two-tiered product portfolio: Machine Tools and Automotive. The success story culminated in a product expansion within the SAMAG GROUP – and in the acquisition of SAMAG Truck Components GmbH. Located in Königsee-Rottenbach, the 100% subsidiary has since supplemented our offering with steel plate and profile machining for the motor vehicle and electrical industry as well as for medical technology and mechanical engineering.
