Heiber + Schroeder USA is a subsidiary of Heiber + Schroeder GmbH, the market leader in packaging machinery including window patching equipment and tray forming machines. H + S USA provides comprehensive after-sales support including, service, spare parts, and training.
Founded in Ekrath, Germany in 1985, the packaging machinery firm has gone from strength to strength in the intervening years. By 1990 Heiber + Schröder had become the market leader in window patching equipment and, today, the number of machines we sell, along with their variety and the number of additional options we offer, ensures that we retain this position.
A large number of worldwide firsts developed by us have made significant impacts on today's market for window patching machines. For example, in the late 80's, we started the development of new packaging machinery for pick-and-place operations in the folding carton industry and in doing so created completely new markets. Later, in 1998, we launched the world's first window patching machine with automatic setting.
After window patching, our second major is tray forming. Since we introduced, in 1993, a new concept for the production of conical trays, we have gone on to become a market leader in this field in packaging machinery as well.
Within our packaging machinery portfolio we also offer an innovative system for the production of displays of various kinds, as well as carrying out special mechanical engineering projects to develop tailor-made solutions to problems in the processing of carton and film.
Currently, Heiber + Schröder is represented in 62 countries with more than 95% of our annual turnover achieved from exports. While development, design and production of our packaging machinery takes place at our headquarters in Germany, after-sales back-up can be provided by 12 service agencies located throughout the world, ensuring local care for our customers.
