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. Basically, we build small to large-scale projects that provide storage and distribution for manufacturers and retailers alike. This involves a lot of cool stuff too like energy-efficient robotics, warehouse management software, data analytics, engineering, mechatronics, project management, and software development. Of course, we have a full support team of great people in our customer service, human resources, sales, marketing, accounting, and our very own warehouse teams.


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.


We’re also proud to be an equal opportunity workplace, and we’re an affirmative action employer. We’re committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship marital status, disability, gender identity, or Veteran status.
