As early as 1910, the following entry could be found in the F.H. Schule sales catalogue: "On October 11, 1897, the Rangoon-based company Walker & White wrote to us: Several rice millers visited us who had seen your machines in operation. They were all highly satisfied and spoke favourably of them back in their companies. Since then, we have delivered more than 400 large Paddy separators to Rangoon, the largest rice processing centre in the world."
It all began on February 2, 1892 with the establishment of an association of F.H. Schule Mühlenbau GmbH with a steel foundry in Hamburg. At the same time, the above-mentioned patent for the table separator was filed with the patent office. Since then the Schule table separator has been the best-selling machine of our production programme worldwide with more than 40,000 machines sold. The first machines to be sold successfully on a national scale were seed cleaning machines. Later on, a second production site was established in Hamburg. Being located directly at the Hamburg waterways, direct loading onto ships was possible - the "Gateway to the world" had opened.
As early as 1920, Schule delivered turnkey rice mills all over the world. Among them, a rice mill including a building with an incredible processing capacity of 2,000 tons of paddy a day.
In the 1960s, a new generation of Schule machines was introduced, including the first rubber roll sheller, the revised table separator as well as the first complete rice parboiling plant.
In 1994, the company F.H Schule Mühlenbau was taken over by the KAHL Group. The Schule machines and plants are manufactured in Reinbek near Hamburg. So they are "made in Germany". This adds to the very high quality standard. In the modern Schule pilot plant, tests are carried out in cooperation with customers, machines are continuously modernised and new machines and processes are studied and developed.
