SCHULER GROUP

HISTORY, TECHNOLOGY & SERVICE 

This profile and subsequent chart are intended to provide a high level overview of press providers. The intent is to educate users of all type of presses on the options you have when selecting your next, stamping, forming, mechanical, hydraulic or forge press.

SCHULER / BCN / BLISS / YADON PRESSES: Schuler was founded in Germany in 1939 and is Germany’s largest press builder. Schuler along with Aida & Komatsu are the three main builders that Sutherland monitors and tracks new innovations and press technology. While Schuler is well known for its quality, the company’s products are prohibitively expensive when in a head to head competitive situation with other press builders.  Schuler acquired the assets of CNB / Clearing-Niagara-Bliss and formed BCN / Bliss-Clearing-Niagara for the parts and service business. In 2014 Schuler purchased a Chinese press builder, Yadon with the intent to gain market share in China.
