What started more than 50 years ago with the gutsy decision of founders Peter Simon and Herbert Braun has developed into into an entrepreneurial and technological success story. The driving force remains the same. MS-Schramberg is dedicated to one of physics' most exciting and fascinating phenomenons: magnetism. We are looking back on a magnetic company history that has spanned half a century.
The company is founded with the name "Herbert Braun GmbH". It's the starting signal for the production of hard ferrite magnets. The "magnetic catch" is the first application for our magnets.
After years of manufacturing for the company Karl Simon, the magnet factory hits the "open market". The product portfolio is expanded to allow further growth. Magnets for bike dynamos are a next step.

Determination of a new milestone in the strategy paper "MS-Schramberg 2022"
Since 2014, MS-Schramberg has been supporting the Wittum School where students aged 6 to 18 who have a developmental disorder, a disability or a similar need for support are taught. From fundraisers to the offer of touring the company and internships, as well as joint baking events or the construction of a barefoot park, we are excited about the many great projects and activities for and with the Wittum School.
How can adolescents prepare for the demands of the real world and choosing a career path? The best way is by gaining exciting practical experience. At the same time, it is important to us as a business to be in touch with young talents as early as possible. That is why we have started long-term educational partnerships with committed schools from our region.
Following many years of working together, a contractually agreed educational partnership has linked us to the Leibniz-Gymnasium Rottweil since 2016. In addition to job orientation internships for secondary school students, in which they got to work on exciting projects like a buoy for recording environmental data, there were many other opportunities for students to gain valuable experience. For example with experiments relating to magnetism or other projects as part of science and technology classes.
The primary school in Lauterbach participates in the TECHNOlino project – a programme of the Südwestmetall (Southwest Metal) employers' association that promotes science and technology. It is supposed to raise the kids' awareness of the environment as well as technical contexts and natural phenomena. Our educational partnership with the school is characterised by activities that support a career choice early on and in a practice-oriented manner. Through exciting company tours and surprising experiments, the students get to know our apprentices, among other employees. They present their work in an illustrative way and thereby allow the students to experience the fascinating topic of magnetism.
Since 2011, we have been working together with the (technical) secondary school in Dunningen and we are offering students internships on a regular basis to help them choose a career. In addition, we are regularly providing students with information on opportunities and requirements regarding apprenticeships at MS-Schramberg and we are a fixture at their Career Information Day.
What applies to the world of technology and permanent magnets also applies to the areas of sports, education, social and cultural issues: Ambitious goals can best be achieved when working closely with trusted partners. We are supporting various clubs and projects in their valuable work. We are not only backing them but are also assuming responsibility for the positive development of our region.
