Business Profile

The Zasche company was founded in 1932. From the very beginning, the company has been an engineering consulting company with expertise in materials handling.

The company is established in Nördlingen, an old imperial city with captivating historical flair. Located in South Germany, within a geographical triangle between Munich, Stuttgart and Nuremberg, it borders onto the state of Baden-Württemberg.

The company soon started to specialise in steelwork, overhead travelling cranes, bridge and slewing jib cranes in 1950. From then onwards, design expertise for pillar-mounted and ceiling-mounted manipulators continued to develop over the years.

In 1970, the company decided it would be economical to establish its own production to meet the rapidly growing demand. Steel structures and slewing jib cranes were the first products to be manufactured.

Since growth remained steady and extremely dynamic, several new, spacious production facilities and a modern administration building were built on the outskirts of Nördlingen between 1980 and 1985.

An event that had a major influence on the company’s future strategy came in 1991 when the strategic decision was made to create a new subdivision specifically for handling equipment. This laid the foundations for the success the company enjoys today.

Business development was very rapid in the following few years, making Zasche one of the top suppliers of handling equipment and manipulators.

Today, Zasche develops, designs, produces and sells sophisticated manipulators for manual handling of small loads on approx. 7000 square metres and with 50 employees.

A close-knit dealer network and service stations right across Europe and agencies all around the world ensure the continued existence and further growth of Zasche in the future.
