The Schiele & Schön publishing house was founded in 1946. The military government of the American zone in Berlin allowed Otto Schiele and Willi Schön to publish “technical works and related literature” from December 16, subject to certain conditions.

The first specialist books, such as the debut book “Cost Determination for Debris Removal Work”, followed in 1947 with the first scientific specialist journal entitled “Frequency”. Their circulation was 7000 copies, all of which could be sold.

In the period that followed, the publisher struggled with problems. The procurement of printing paper turned out to be difficult or even impossible in the post-war period and the currency reform in 1948 caused the order situation to collapse. In 1950 the trade journal Gießerei-Praxis was taken over . At the same time, the first annual series of specialist paperbacks began to be published, which was also titled Gießerei-Praxis. From 1952 the "textile industry" followed, from 1954 "machine tools and tools" and from 1959 the "telecommunication praxis", which appears today as " Telekom Praxis ".

The basis for the continuation of these series, but also for the inclusion of new titles in the range of books, was the takeover of the respective departments for technical books of the publishers Westphal (1959) and Hellmuth Lange (1964). To date, a total of 13 monthly magazines have been included in the repertoire, among them "Fernmelde-Praxis" since 1959 and " Schmalfilm " from 1964 .

In 2002, the publishing house, which had previously been run as a family company, was sold. The new management decided to take over FKT , the association magazine of the cinema and television technology company , from the Heidelberger Verlag Hüthig GmbH & Co. KG. In 2005, the trade journal "Elektromagazin", founded in 1955, was handed over to the magazine department of the de Gruyter publishing group . Since 2006, the publisher has also published the Deutsche IngenieurBlatt published by the Federal Chamber of Engineers . In 2007, the specialist magazine PC & MUSIK was taken over. In 2008, the greenBUILDING magazine was founded , which deals with the topic of sustainable building and planning. In 2017 the publisher is expanding its product range to include congresses and events.
