Our Story

Schlebach Maschinen GmbH is one of the leading manufacturers of machines and equipment for standing seam technology.

In 1979 Bartolosch GmbH, owner Mr. Ing. Friedhelm Bartolosch, took over the rights of the company Schlebach, Heilbronn and founded the company “Schlebach-Maschinen GmbH” – machines for folding technology. The new location Friedewald is situated in the Westerwald, embedded in a hilly landscape in the German border triangle of North Rhine-Westphalia, Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate.

Through tireless work enthusiasm and always good contacts to customers and employees, a worldwide known specialist in standing seam technology was created. Since the name “Schlebach” was also known beyond the borders, it was decided to continue to operate under this company name.

The big breakthrough came with the development of the first width-adjustable profiling machine in 1981. The top position now achieved created high expectations on the market, which were also fulfilled in the following years with the developments of the round sheet forming machine (1985), the EHA notching unit (1989) and, last but not least, the QUADRO profiling machine (1997).

Through constant investments, the “small craftsman’s business” has become a highly modern and efficient company over the last 30 years.

The Schlebach company, meanwhile managed by the two managing directors Patric Meeth and Christoph Gerigk, is a pure family business with many long-time employees. Together with Bartolosch GmbH, the company now employs around 200 people on a production area of 10,000 square meters.

Thus, Schlebach still works according to the motto “everything from one source”, because planning, design, production and worldwide sales take place under one roof.

This guarantees optimum performance and a high quality standard.

Motivated by the success of the past years, the Schlebach team will continue to make every effort in the future to maintain and further expand its leading position on the market through innovations.


Schlebach in perfection.
