SSI SCHAEFER is a leading material handling company that’s been in business since 1937. We’re a privately held international company with lots of diversity. You may be wondering about what a material handling company does, and that’s okay. We’re behind the scenes of our customers, and we make everything happen.


Here at SSI SCHAEFER, we’re family and we know it takes all of us to get the job done. We’ve even won Best Places to Work™ several years in a row and offer competitive benefits like 401K, Roth 401K, 401k matching, a great PTO packaging, and because we want our family team to be healthy, we provide generous medical benefits including our very own private general practitioner. We also want you to be successful here and that’s why we offer an education assistance program. How do we do it? We put our customers first and we’ve got a great culture DNA here at SSI SCHAEFER—it’s that simple.
