Individually designed plants

Since 1951, the delivery year of the first plating plant designed in Geislingen, the Schlötter Group has built more than 1,000 electroplating plants. Plants designed  by Schlötter range from manual plants and modernisations to sophisticated automatic electroplating plants with multiple lines and tank volumes of over 100,000 litres. Each plant is unique and presents our team with new challenges. Our goal is to develop individual solutions which are ideally tailored to meet the specific requirements of our customers.
