The late, Mr. Fredrich Schwing Sr. (1892-1982) was a man dedicated to providing solutions. In 1934 he started SCHWING GmbH, a manufacturing firm in West Germany, to translate his more than 1200 patents into productive machinery. From drum mixers to the first modern concrete pump, the SCHWING name has been on innovative concrete machinery for more than 75 years.


Sons Fredrich and Gerhard expand the SCHWING product line and put the SCHWING name at the forefront of concrete pump development and sales.

Market launch of the SX outriggers

The idea of a truck-mounted concrete pump with a bow-shaped outrigger is a revolution. Due to the lack of another telescopic element as with other manufacturers, the new SX outrigger is more stable and robust and ensures quiet pumping conditions.


Market launch of the VECTOR controller

With the introduction of the new VECTOR machine control system, SCHWING is revolutionizing the way in which a truck-mounted concrete pump is operated. For the first time, the control system of a truck-mounted concrete pump has a display that makes operation of the machine significantly easier and more comfortable. This link between the machinist and the machine translates the machinist's commands into actions.


SCHWING’s success attracts a merger with XCMG, China’s largest manufacturer of construction equipment, to mutually benefit both companies  growth. Gerhard Schwing continues the family tradition of leading the company with innovative products for the future.
