What does Scherf do?
The development, production and marketing of products made from natural, mineral raw materials.
Why does Scherf do this?
In order to meet customer needs and ensure success.
The 25 year company history has been shaped by the sourcing of new products and marketing ideas.
Cut-throat competition is not our thing.
Because sand and natural stone are highly emotive products and give people their own little piece of the earth. Walking on gravel and the feeling of the sand beneath your feet is healing for both the body and mind. These ancient materials, millions of years old, have contributed to the slowing down of our high-paced lifestyle.
How does Scherf do this?
In such a way that our customers (retailers or subsequently consumers and processors) also receive the additional value that this cooperation ensures. We want to inspire, astonish and shape trends in the future.
Factors that lead to our success:
• Innovation ? without pressure utilising ideas and visions
• Creative sales promotion concepts
• The depth of the product range sharpens our company profile, whilst the scope distorts it. We are only committed to product ranges
whereby we can implement new standards from the very beginning. Market research and innovative power form the basis for these
• We think in terms of solutions and not in terms of products and turnover.
• Modern and careful processing methods.
• A clear product range and brand policy.
• Sophisticated logistic concepts
What is important to Scherf?
All of our raw materials are sourced in Europe, with the greatest amount coming from Austria. For several years, specific Austrian and adjacent Eastern European raw material resources have been tested and marketed. In this way, transport routes are significantly shortened, CO2 emissions are drastically reduced and the product is cheaper due to lower transport costs. We combine the beauty of local raw materials and reveal their hidden treasure. We have made a conscious decision to avoid standard imports within the natural stone industry from foreign countries such as India and China (human rights, working conditions, environmental pollution, unnecessary long-distance transport routes).
Where is Scherf?
We do not only have access to a retail network in Austria, but also in many other European countries. We see our retail partners as our extended arm, as they serve as invaluable business contacts.
