Carrying on Generations of Growth

ProPulse's story began in Dusseldorf, Germany 1923.

Anton Schieffer, a rubber goods trader, established Schieffer GmbH & Co. KG in 1923. The firm grew and prospered, but World War II brought disaster and the company was completely destroyed. In 1945, Schieffer GmbH & Co. KG was rebuilt in Lippstadt, and success followed again. Twenty-five years later, Anton Schieffer transferred the business to his sons, Egon and Joachim, who took the company to new heights. Under their direction, Schieffer entered the high-pressure hose business with excellent results.

In 1998, after presiding over significant growth, the brothers passed the company to the third generation. Ekkehart Schieffer and Wilfried Schieffer-Adick executed a plan for global expansion that included subsidiaries in Israel and Romania.

At the same time, Schieffer Co. International, L.C. was founded in Peosta, Iowa, by the Schieffer family and managing partner, Jeff Theis, a 30-year veteran of the high-pressure fluid industry. Peosta was chosen, in part, because it is located in the geographic center of the country, allowing for efficient distribution. The location also puts the company in the heart of the U.S agricultural and construction machine manufacturing area.

Today, we are continuing to grow. Our management team is focused on detailed strategic planning that considers and addresses both the internal and external factors that affect the business. Most recently, we have invested in a new office space, warehouse, and land for further expansion. We have also purchased additional equipment to increase our thermoplastic hose manufacturing capacity by 50%.
