Innovative strength, passion and craftsmanship
In 1979 SCHOCK designed the quartz composite sink. And has reinvented it again and again ever since. How? By letting the employees imagine innovation at the drawing table, in the laboratory, on the tool bench and in their own imagination in the most beautiful colours. Today, over 75% of all sinks around the world are produced using the Schock process.
SCHOCK produces high-quality, ecologically safe sinks and recyclable packaging materials. The company has halved its water consumption since 2007 and achieved a raw material efficiency of 90%. This is one of the reasons why SCHOCK is the only manufacturer of quartz composite sinks to produce exclusively in Germany. Aid organisations such as the Ohole Ambassadors use their financial resources to create education and a future in a poor settlement in Okahandja (Namibia). The most important innovation drivers are all the employees at SCHOCK who challenge and redefine the limits of what is possible every day and push ahead with innovations with an unbridled pioneering spirit.

SCHOCK is Punk
When the “Godfather of Punk” tells the story of the sustainable kitchen sink in a fairy tale reimagining of the Bavarian Forest, only one company can be behind it: SCHOCK, the inventors of the quartz composite sink, who have found the perfect face for their latest marketing campaign in the form of Iggy Pop.
SCHOCK now produces sinks using over 99% natural, renewable or recycled raw materials. The premium kitchen installations are produced in Germany – handmade and with great attention to detail. From 2021, the KALLIO model is available from dealers in intense graphite black or pure white.
