We are a 700-person family business and one team.
We are united by the philosophy of setting things in motion, tackling problems and making a difference. We are proud – especially at a time when people long for sustainable solutions for the mobility revolution – to have been doing precisely this for almost 100 years. We have been smoothing the way for the transportation of goods, people and commerce since 1929. We operate around the world without borders – with a focus on Germany and Europe.
Future-oriented since 1929.
We have years of experience behind us, but are forward-thinking. We have been working on ongoing development since our founding – our own development, as well as that of our machines and global mobility solutions.
All this started with Heinrich! Heinrich Schweer is our founder and eponym, and established our company in 1929 with courage and drive. Heinrich passed away in 1955 and his son-in-law Gerhard Jelitto took over management of the business, thus continuing the family tradition. In 1986, Heinrich’s grandson Lutz Jelitto entered the family business and has been managing company activities to this day. Over the years, new locations and branch offices have been added and with them came new employees. While there were just 100 in 1990, in 2021 the company has around 700 employees – and growing.
Locations and branch offices.
Our head office is in Stadthagen near Hannover; we also operate branch offices throughout Germany and work on (major) construction sites across Europe. We are often guests in different countries, which is why it is a matter of course for us to treat all cultures as equal.
