April 2022 marks the 60-year anniversary of Schöck Bauteile GmbH, the parent company of Schöck North America.

The company was founded in April of 1962 with a crew of five bricklayers, and has grown over six decades into a global manufacturer with over 1,100 employees supplying more than 40 markets worldwide.

The vision of founder Eberhard Schöck (1935-2022) was to “make building better and more modern.” With numerous innovations, including the introduction of the first commercially available structural thermal break, Schöck products continue to improve the sustainability of the buildings in which they are installed.

“The anniversary is a testament to the long-term structural integrity and thermal performance of Schöck products, as well as the dedication and business acumen of the Schöck family,” says Tracy Dacko, Marketing Manager for North America.

Mr. Schöck believed that the cornerstone of building a business was to build up its people. He prioritized the continuing education and development of company personnel and, together with his wife Sabine, established two nonprofit foundations that develop resources and promote training and education in underprivileged regions worldwide.

The company’s Isokorb® structural thermal breaks support concrete and steel connections that penetrate the building envelope, while reducing heat loss by up to 90 percent and preventing condensation and mold on adjacent interior surfaces. With more than 16 million installations worldwide, typical applications include balconies, slab edges, canopies, beams, rooftop equipment connections and parapets.
