Schenker Technologies is a Leipzig-based company operating throughout Europe as a provider of IT hardware and accessories, distribution services, and the latest in augmented and virtual reality technologies. Around 80 employees are responsible for a comprehensive range of activities, from production and storage to service, support and administration, all under one roof.
Just one element of the company's portfolio is the local manufacture of freely configurable laptops and desktop PCs from renowned company brands XMG (gaming) and SCHENKER (professional users), which have already received numerous awards from industry media thanks to the use of the latest and most powerful components, in addition to our expert trilingual customer service.
The third pillar of the company, the new e-commerce platform bestware.com, also complements and rounds off the company's own range with a carefully chosen selection of the best products from other manufacturers and the new bestware.com PC configuration tool. Schenker Technologies sees itself as an innovative trendsetter and uses its many years of distribution experience to provide the European market with the world's most interesting new technologies and custom solutions.
Since 2016, the company has also been providing its customers with increased support as part of the OVRLAB partnership, acting as a specialist full-service provider for the implementation of commercial-creative extended-reality projects.
Robert Schenker, Managing Director
The company owes its name and foundation to Robert Schenker, who created "mySN Schenker Notebook" in 2002, a start-up with a tradition of focusing specifically on the wishes of its customers. This down-to-earth entrepreneur, who originally trained as a concert musician before entering the industry, continues to prove his keen intuition for the needs of the target group: he not only picked up on the approaching virtual reality trend at an early stage, he also successfully brought the internationally renowned DreamHack to Leipzig, which is now the base of the company headquarters and home town to the married father of two children. Under his forward-thinking leadership, SCHENKER Technologies has been able to develop into a provider which operates throughout Europe, while still maintaining the customer-focused, friendly approach that has always been a key feature of its business culture.
