What We Do

Our Mission

We create integrated solutions with agility and talent, supported by a motivated, spirited team that is committed and focused in anticipating the market, acting with determination and excellence.

Performing Solutions is not only our claim: it is how, every day, we aim for outstanding performance by offering innovative solutions throughout the aluminium die casting process.

A different approach

More than producing Aluminium die cast parts for the automotive industry our commitment is to develop an exceptional solution, designed exclusively for each client, for each part, in a process that starts with our team of top planning Engineers, goes on to our experts in the tool shop, where state of the art molds are produced and ends up in the shop floor where hard working operators oversee that the die cast process brings good quality parts to life.

About us

Strong commitment

At some organisations, engagement seems to happen naturally. And the moment one steps into our facilities, this is immediately felt. People are committed, energetic and passionate about their work. Positive attitudes and behaviours are transmitted to each new hire during our check-in process, to ensure that the promise we make to our clients, is built into every single part produced.


Our Board

The Board

Since 1989 that our Board has been working firmly to establish the Schmidt Light Metal Group as a major player in the Portuguese Automotive Industry. We have proudly produced since the beginning components for automobiles, that are now crossing the streets all over the world. This is only possible because these leaders have always had a clear vision of what they want to pursue. They are the ones who shape the future and make it happen, acting as role models for their values and ethics and inspiring trust at all times. This is their shared vision, their shared commitment, their shared knowledge. They know that success comes from hard work, from developing a stakeholder focused strategy that is then put to action into every decision made.

30 Years

30th Anniversary

On the 23rd of November 1989, the organization that we proudly now call Schmidt Light Metal Group was born. Thirty years passed and as we celebrate this achievement through 2020, we also prepare for the future in this famous VUCA world, that shifts at the speed of lightning.
To all the clients and stakeholders, many of whom witnessed our history unroll, we would like to thank for the trust placed on us.
This mark would not have been possible without the dedication of a team of people, from the first 12 in 1989 to the 499 that today come through our gates to bring a dream to life. They are the true heroes of our story.
