Schöck Ltd UK is a member of the Schöck Group, which operates 14 companies around the globe with a staff of around 900 employees. The company's head office is in Baden-Baden, Germany, where the success tale of founder and construction engineer Eberhard Schöck began more than 50 years ago. His pioneering inventions streamlined construction and set new standards.
Innovation is our company philosophy
To this day, our comprehensive technical expertise, commitment and years of experience gained with our customers in their sectors can still turn ideas into products that are fit for series production. The company's primary focus is on the development of ready-to-install components that are part of the structural design and make a substantial contribution to building physics, for example by minimising thermal bridges or preventing impact noise in buildings. Our main product is the Schöck Isokorb® - a load bearing thermal insulation element preventing thermal bridges on cantilever elements, such as balconies, parapets, access balconies or canopy roofs. With more than 12,000 standard types and solutions for use in concrete, steel and wood, Schöck is the leading specialist in this sector both for new construction and for renovation projects. A further business areas focuses on reinforcement technology for industrial, tunnel, bridge, and infrastructure construction or building power plants.
Passionate about service
Alongside product innovations, Schöck also places particular importance on a broad portfolio of services, such as our 24h delivery service for goods in stock, our engineering hotline in the Design Support department or our Schöck field service. After all, true quality embraces the trappings as well, and not just the product.

As far back as 1992, Eberhard Schöck demonstrated that commercial success was not the only thing that mattered to him and his family when he set up his non-profit trust Eberhard-Schöck-Stiftung. He has donated most of his share capital to the trust, which is funded from the dividend payments.
Social commitment is equally important for Schöck as a company, as is environmental protection and quality management.
Health & safety, environmental protection
We strive to protect the environment by using environmentally compatible materials and processes in production and managing an environmentally sustainable fleet. Our environmental objectives include measures to reduce energy consumption. For example, we generate energy from photovoltaic plants, and environmental and health & safety issues play a huge role when erecting new or modifying existing buildings.
Eberhard-Schöck-Stiftung and Schöck-Familien-Stiftung GmbH
Two trusts – Eberhard-Schöck-Stiftung and Schöck-Familien-Stiftung GmbH – are the largest individual shareholders of Schöck AG. As a result, a large part of the economic success of the company is donated directly to charity. The actions of Eberhard-Schöck-Stiftung are guided by the motto "Change through education". Projects primarily support the building trade in Central and Eastern Europe. The trust is also active in Germany, where it awards the Schöck Bau-Innovationspreis (Schöck Award for Innovation in Building and Construction) and the Kulturpreis Deutsche Sprache (German Language Culture Award). Schöck Familienstiftung gGmbH was founded in 2012 and sponsors education and vocational training projects for children, teenagers and young adults in Germany, India and Nepal.
