Tradition

And Progress

The company was founded in 1968 by Hans Schmid, chartered chemist. He already gained considerable practical experience in the development and application of phenolic resins while studying chemistry at university. He consolidated his know-how in the company Bakelite, where he later managed the department „Development and application techniques for phenolic resins“ as chartered chemist from1957 to 1964. From 1964 to 1968, Hans Schmid managed the departments „Development, application techniques and production of technical laminates and laminated plastics“ in the company Ferrozell.

In 1968 Hans Schmid founded his own company, the focus point of which was phenolic resin impregnation. With Werzalit as his first customer, the company’s continuous growth was characterised by the constant development of new ideas. The technical development was successfully extended to melamine resin impregnation. Close cooperation with customers as well as suppliers has always been Hans Schmid KG’s secret to success.

This family enterprise is independent of any group and can therefore make its own decisions freely and in the interest of its clients! In this way, the Hans Schmid KG evolved into one of the most important independent impregnation companies in central Europe. Harmonised phenolic and melamine resin product systems are supplied from the same source.

The company is managed by a team which places equal emphasis on tradition and progress. This highly competent team is still by Hans Schmid as managing director.
