The company

Herr Schnaidt - Schnaidt GmbH

Helmut Schnaidt
Corporate founder

Integrity, passion and innovative spirit coupled with the latest technology.

These characteristics are the cornerstone of sustained success, strategic alliances, partnerships and a maximum level of customer satisfaction.

Schnaidt GmbH was established in 1989 by the married couple Margrit and Helmut Schnaidt in Herrenberg, Germany.

The core business initially focused on the manufacture of soldering masks for the wave soldering of configured assemblies. The product range was soon expanded through the addition of assembly holders for the separation of electronic assemblies.
Complex markets and changing customer demands required the continuous expansion and adaptation of the product portfolio. In addition to equipment for the soldering and separation of assemblies, Schnaidt GmbH and its over 80 employees are involved today in the manufacture of complete picking and placing process technology products for electronic assemblies at two locations.

Personnel who undergo the best training available, production machinery which represents state-of-the-art technological standards, sophisticated process structures and the right strategic orientation also guarantee professional solutions for the future for the tasks which customers set us.
