German company Schuberth were found in 1922. Since then they have been producing protective headgear for Formula One, motorcycles and industrial workers. Schuberth is currently based in Magdeburg and employs about 300 employees, producing 1.5 million helmets each year.
In response to Michael Schumacherís accident in 1999 at the British Grand Prix, Schuberth decided to take action and designed the QF1 helmet, a safer helmet which was later worn by Nick Heidfeld at the 2000 Formula One. The QF1 helmet was not only lighter than other helmets at the time but featured filters that removed fumes and dust for the air. Successfully this newly designed helmet was then worn by more drivers including the world champion at the time, Michael Schumacher. Schuberth helmets are worn by drivers still to this day.
Schuberth produces helmets for a variety of industrial purposes, including protection for firefighters and construction workers, producing full face helmets and head protection. The company also produces personal protective equipment, such as facial protection, ear defenders and cold weather equipment.
