Every future has a past. And requires vision.

Alfred Scholpp founded H. + A. Scholpp in 1956. In the difficult economic environment of post-war Germany, the company helped people and businesses to transport heavy loads. Over time, the objects handled became bigger and heavier. Buildings, machinery and production processes became more complex, and so did customer requirements. SCHOLPP kept pace with the times by responding with new technology and services. Today, SCHOLPP provides all-round solutions for moving heavy loads, and installing and modernizing machines and equipment in almost every industry – nationally and internationally. Much has changed since our beginnings, but one thing has remained constant: our commitment to delivering benefits for our customers through technology and service.
