History of the Schuko Group

History

Growing with our tasks – year after year

Schuko has been a family business ever since its inception in 1968. Established by Heinz Schulte-Südhoff, Schuko Group is now being run by brothers Heiko and Andre Schulte-Südhoff in its second generation of management.
