Schrage Conveying Systems – 30 years of proven bulk material handling

CHain Conveyors from Friedeburg since 1987

Many years ago, when Remmer Schrage designed his first tube chain conveyor, the success story of Schrage Conveying Systems was in the making. Several thousand systems have been installed so far. Today, the company from northern Germany is well known all over the world, the conveyors can be found in virtually all industries and the third generation of entrepreneurs is already on board.

3rd generation of bulk material handling solutions

For three decades, Schrage Conveying Systems has been developing and installing tube chain conveyors for different industries worldwide. Founded by Remmer Schrage on 31 July 1987, the medium-sized family enterprise today employs more than 60 people and is managed by the sons Ralf and Frank Schrage.
This year, Daniel Schrage, the son of Ralf Schrage, became part of the company as the first member of the third generation.
As of today, the entire enterprise can be found in one location in Friedeburg, Germany. All the projects all over the world are managed from here.
The principle of the Schrage conveyors has stood the test of time because, compared to other conveyors, tube chain conveyors are much more efficient, clean and energy saving.

Many years full of new ideas and systems

Apart from the classic tube chain conveyors as permanently installed systems, there are now also many mobile conveyors for flexible bulk material handling as well as individually tailored special solutions. In the industry, Schrage Conveying Systems is known as a true “problem solver”, since the engineers’ pioneering spirit has them searching for the perfect solution, especially in the case of tricky problems. The latest development is the “BULKup” (, a space-saving foldable system. It can be moved by means of a lift truck and within 2 minutes it is ready to load bulk material from big bags onto a truck, for example.

Many projects require lots of space

Schrage has also grown in terms of space: As early as in 2005, Schrage added their own test facility as well as an exposition hall. In 2006, a new administrative building was added and, in May 2009, the production facility was built. Due to the continuous growth and many enquiries, more buildings are now being added: The production facility will grow by another 2,100 m² in order to increase the storage capacity and to optimise the storage of components. It will then be possible, for example, to store tubes and bends closer to the saw to shorten distances and optimise the working time. New crane systems will alleviate the work on the saw.
The new open assembly space is ideal for putting together the stand alone systems, the mobile tube chain conveyors and the BULKup. The delivery area will be reconstructed so that the engineers can take care of the final inspection of the entire system on site. Soon it will be possible to easily load deliveries in the yard, which will be extended by another 2,400 m². There will also be sufficient space for storing raw products.

Active in almost all industries

Schrage’s customers come from very diverse branches of industry, from cement works and power stations to the coal industry and recycling companies. Sales have increased especially in the pharmaceutical and food industries, due to Schrage’s extensive know-how. These industries are subject to special regulations on cleanliness and safety, and the building reconstruction can also be used for separating the mild and stainless steel manufacturing. In addition, new welding fume extraction systems will be added, and a welding robot for larger quantities at the end of 2017.
The continuous joy in finding new solutions, the many interesting branches of industry, the worldwide application and the positive order situation give the management as well as the staff of Schrage Conveying Systems a very positive outlook into the future.
