The 24th March 1976 saw the official incorporation of SCHOTT UK, the first UK sales office for the leading international technology group, SCHOTT AG.
SCHOTT House located on Drummond Road, Stafford has been the home to SCHOTT UK since it was first built and began its operations 40 years ago.
The Stafford office was established to be the sales subsidiary of the SCHOTT Group in the UK. Its role over the years has been to manage the sale and distribution of SCHOTT's products into the various market sectors. These sectors have included home appliances, pharmaceuticals, automotive and aerospace to name but a few. The Stafford base houses logistics, finance, sales support and marketing as well as providing a home for the sales staff distributed across the country. John Meadows, current MD of SCHOTT UK comments "Our Stafford base has served us well across the years. We are very central regarding the road and rail network and have benefitted from a skilled and committed workforce from the area."
SCHOTT UK celebrated its anniversary locally with customers, present & past employees and management from Germany. On Saturday 19th March, a small group of customers and employees visited the Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter Racecourse, a chilly but exciting day. Weston Hall hosted a beautiful evening event on Wednesday 23rd March for our current and past long serving employees. To mark this occasion the two founding member of SCHOTT UK, Mr Dieter Anders and Mr Walter Zuber joined us for the evening. For the official date Thursday 24th March, the current employees held a company conference in the office, with external speakers to provide the employees with valuable advice from pensions to staying healthy.
SCHOTT UK would like to thank its customers, past and present employees, SCHOTT AG and everyone who has supported us over the past 40 years and we are excited and looking forward to the next 40 years.
