In the early fifties, an engineer by the name of Johann Schoenrock started his own steel construction shop in Hamburg, Joh. Schoenrock oHG. Soon after the foundation of the company he began to build hydraulic operating devices for engine room skylights, as well as spindle davits to lower lifeboats, all designed for the maritime industry and fabricated in his own workshop.
As time went by, the ongoing market as well as technical developments formed new challenges for the company and SCHOENROCK developed itself into a specialized supplier of hydraulically operated watertight sliding (bulkhead) doors, bow and stern ramps, movable as well as fixed car decks, side shell doors and other type of cargo access equipment. After a complete reorganization in 2002, a new company was founded under the name of SCHOENROCK Hydraulik Marine Systems GmbH.
