The company was founded 1985 as „Gottschild Steuerungsbau“ ( electrical engineering ) in Halle Westfalen / Germany.
In 1990 the company was transformed into a limited liability company and business activity was extended to mechanical engineering. Since that time, Gottschild succesfully developes innovative technologies for optimization of production processes in furniture manufacturing and has established itself as system supplier in the global furniture industry.
It began with a challenge given by a door manufacturer in middle of Germany – a machine for automatically trimming of membrane pressed parts. The result: the first fully-automated trimming robot, now in operation since 1991 – a forefather of the Gottschild CS-series machines. Short time later Gottschild started with worldwide marketing of that new technology and today Gottschild systems are in operation across the globe. Gottschild’s customer list reads like a Who’s Who list of leading furniture manufacturers in Europe, United States, and Australia.
In beginning of year 2000 Gottschild developed the world’s first disc brushing machine to remove the over-spray glue on the backs of 3D furniture fronts. Based on this proven technology, as of 2006 followed the further development of a polishing and sanding machine for lacquered high-gloss furniture fronts and Corian®
Innovation and in-depth technological knowledge are the characteristics of Gottschild. With the constant development of the machines Gottschild has set the goal, to reduce more manual processes and increasing the speed, quality and efficiency of machines for in the production of furniture components.
