Schwing was established in 1934 and started producing products for the construction, road construction and mining industry. After 1945 Schwing began the development of hoists and elevators, mobile tower cranes, universal crawler cranes, hydraulic excavators and the inevitable concrete and mortar mixing machines. By 1973 SCHWING was already building truck-mounted concrete pumps with 45 m booms that were far ahead of their time.
A few years later SCHWING GmbH took over Stetter to extend and round off its product program.
The SCHWING Group is the world’s No. 1 system house in all matters concerning concrete – from batching and mixing to transport, placing of the fresh concrete through to recycling of residual concrete. Wherever concrete is produced and building blocks of the world are moved, that is where you find the Schwing Group.
In addition to its headquarters in Herne the Schwing Group has production plants in Germany, Austria, the USA, Brazil, Russia, China and India and is being represented in more than 100 countries worldwide.
