Since 1989

Our history is made of Milestones conquered, only made possible by hard work, full commitment to our clients and a team of dedicated people that are proud to represent the Schmidt Light Metal Group, the minute they join the organization.
It was in 1989 that the first stone was laid for the building that today houses part of our casting cells and from then on we have been growing, improving and investing.
