Comparing Europe’s rather low economic forecast with that in the US, the economy is booming. A reason for many American companies to prepare for the future in order to gain a competitive advantage. Schmidt & Heinzmann also benefits from this development. Especially the fields of cutting & stacking as well as processing of semi-finished composite products, experience very high growth rates in the US. The company’s technological leadership build up by the constant development of machines and processes in recent years contributes to this.

“With our new subsidiary in the greater Cleveland area we will be able to serve our customers in the Midwest and East Coast even faster and more targeted from now on,” says Christian Fais, President of Schmidt & Heinzmann North America. Commissioners, service engineers and project managers for coordinating of commissioning and service, work at this site. Sales, marketing and general administration will continue to be located in Phoenix, as well as the service team for the West Cost customers. This second subsidiary enables the company to achieve significantly faster response times.
