Who we are
Who we are
Since its formation in the year 1946, Werner Schmid GmbH has been managed as a traditional family-run company; it is now being led by the third generation. In our technically ultra-modern plants, we mainly manufacture components for the automotive and ventilation industries as well as for measurement and control technology. Apart from metalworking and plastics processing, the domains of design and development, tool-making and further processing are also among the pillars on which the success of our company has been built. Moreover, Werner Schmid GmbH also offers its in-house toolmaking facility for selling tools in follow-on composite technology. The focus of our company is on high precision in the production of intricate parts as well as specialisation in hybrid technology in which metallic components are coated with plastics. Social and ecological responsibility for the region are as much goals of our company as are sustainable growth, continuous further development, and innovation.

Werner Schmid in numbers
Now employing a total of about 300 staff at the Fulda site, Werner Schmid GmbH manufactures plastic and metal products primarily for the automobile industry, the ventilation industry and the manometer industry. In both the segments, our core competences are in the development and manufacture of the required tools (toolmaking) like plastic injection moulds, transfer tools, follow-on composite tools – mainly for our own needs, but if needed, also for other manufacturers, as well as in the production of components that stretch the limits of what is technically feasible.
Our metalworking facility deals with the production of intricately shaped parts, which can be manufactured using transfer and follow-on composite tools on eccentric presses with a compressive force of up to 630 tonnes and two modern servo-presses with a compressive force of up to 400 tonnes. In plastics technology, we manufacture technical injection moulded parts on injection moulding machines with a locking force of up to 700 tonnes.
We offer our customers further processing in both the segments: Whereas plastic products can be finished with downstream processes such as assembly, ultrasound welding or pad printing, an annealing plant for stress relief heat treatment, a robot-operated lathe, a slide grinding machine as well as a modern degreasing, cleaning and rust-proofing plant are all available for the further processing of metal parts.
Furthermore, we have specialised in the manufacture of so-called metal-plastic hybrids, in which we spray metal parts from our internal production with plastic, or form composites with plastic parts by some other method.
