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.

Current press releases
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.
Sustainability is an integral part of SCHOCK’s DNA: “No one can opt out of this world,” noted the then Managing Director Friedrich Schock back in 1995. The current management team also share this conviction, and they live it. “We are innovation leaders in the quartz composite market. Shaping the future has always been our speciality,” says Ralf Boberg, SCHOCK’s CEO. The company’s strategic focus, SINK GREEN, accelerates its path towards a sustainable future, because the inventors of quartz composite sinks have set themselves a demanding agenda.
SCHOCK Presents World First:
Standing still is an unknown concept to the inventors of the quartz composite sink from Regen, Germany. In their in-house R&D lab there’s an innovative team working continually on optimising their high-grade products. And the team did it again: they created a world first in the form of CRISTADUR® Green Line, the most sustainable quartz composite sinks from SCHOCK. With this evolution, the innovation leader gives dealers the option to position themselves and offers end customers a product line that is consistent with the movement towards conscious consumption and greater consideration of the way every individual’s actions shape the future. The innovative material’s development marks a rigorous continuation of the sustainability drive pursued by the Bavarian company, which has always produced its quartz composite sinks in harmony with nature and the local region: SCHOCK is the only quartz composite sink manufacturer to produce exclusively in Germany, naturally using quartz sand from the local region.
