SEMA: The number one company in machine tools

SEMA Machine Tools from Traunkirchen in Austria has developed and manufactured machine tools since 1988 and is an indispensable partner to customers in all parts of the world.

The company’s business activities are focused on the development, manufacturing and assembly of custom machine tools for series production and special machining. SEMA Machine Tools views itself above all as a competent problem-solver, not simply a supplier of innovative and high-performance machines and plants. From the first consultation meeting to assembly and lifetime on-site service, SEMA Machine Tools does it all.

Adolf Schacherleitner - the founder of SEMA and his story:

Adolf Schacherleitner, founder and Managing Director of SEMA Machine Tools

“It all started when I bought myself a drawing board and produced designs for various companies. This quickly became unfulfilling since I only made drawings and submitted them; I never had a chance to actually see the machines I designed. So I leased a hall in Gmunden and founded SEMA Machine Tools in 1989, starting with two employees.

In 1995, I relocated the operation to Traunkirchen, where I purchased the former brick factory, which was in a terrible condition, renovated it and then expanded it continuously. I also grew my workforce, and SEMA Machine Tools now employees about 200 people.

Today, I am able to focus more on the pure business aspects. What many people don’t know is that the letters SEMA stand for Schacherleitner Elektronik Maschinenbau (Schacherleitner Electronics and Machine Tools). SEMA Machine Tools is my life’s work, successfully built with the help of my employees!"
