Specialist for metal forming technology!

As of May 20, 2021, the Leinburg-Weißenbrunn-based tool manufacturer SMU GmbH has become part of the Schröder Group. Both companies have been cooperating for many years and are now pooling their competencies to further expand their market position in the German and international sheet metal forming market. With the acquisition of the tool manufacturer SMU, the Schröder Group is expanding its know-how in the various areas of tool making. As with software development, the company is thus deepening its own value chain as part of its growth strategy, broadening its process know-how and being able to optimize developments in important additional components for the use of its machines.

SMU’s specialist knowledge will be crucial when it comes to integrating and developing new machine tools as well as customer-specific tooling requirements. “Our goal is to develop solutions that will enable Schröder Group customers to work even more successfully and efficiently in the long term and sustainably,” says Franz Schröder. With the acquisition of SMU GmbH, the Schröder Group welcomes 24 new employees. SMU will continue to appear on the market as the independent tool brand “SMU”.
