Superior solutions for our customers, the highest quality standards, our entrepreneurial spirit and the uniqueness of our team all form the foundation for our lasting sustainable growth and growing company value.
We see it as our mission to support all of our existing and potential customers in the realisation of their ideas and lay the groundwork for a long-standing partnership. Since our inception in 1989, we have been proud to manufacture pioneering products for a variety of industries based on custom solutions using cutting-edge technologies while providing excellent service.

At Kunststofftechnik Schmid, we are only as good as our employees. We treat each other openly, honestly and respectfully. In our view, working together should be based on consideration and mutual support. We place the idea of family at the heart of what we do.
Our actions are guided by an appreciation of people and the environment. We are aware of our special commitment to society and future generations and make a lasting contribution to the future.
Quality and the environment
Responsibility for the environment and society
To us, quality management is more than just a buzzword. As a DIN ISO 9001:2015 certified company, we face new challenges every day and thoroughly explore how we can continue to improve our processes, making them even more efficient.
We document and ensure consistently high quality through the use of our innovative IT-based host computer system and CAQ system. These tools make it possible for us to record and analyse all of the ongoing production data in real-time, which allows us to respond to changes as quickly as possible. Using this approach, we manufacture consistently high-quality products and, at the same time, monitor and document each cycle. Depending on the customer’s requirements, we can also carry out 100-per cent, application-specific checks through camera inspection.
Energy and environmental management
As a company with energy-intensive manufacturing processes, we are especially committed to responsible environmental and energy policies. Being conscientious when it comes to our use of resources is second nature.
All of the decisions taken in the company are guided by these special environmentally conscious criteria – which often go beyond the legal requirements. Employees are motivated to act responsibly through the training and education they receive on energy and environmental awareness.
Various actions, such as generating our own energy from renewable sources and becoming certified in the areas of energy and environmental management, demonstrate our efforts.
Certificate “Energiebewusstes Unternehmen” – only available in German language
Certificate “Umweltbewusster Fachbetrieb” – only available in German language
