Schneider Packaging Equipment Co., Inc., specializing in end-of-line solutions for case packing and palletizing needs, is celebrating the company’s 40th anniversary as a privately-owned family business, with three generations of Schneiders in active roles in the company at its Brewerton, NY facility.
“This anniversary is a testament to the quality of the leadership, to their tight knit organization, and to the demand for their product offerings and services,” says Daniel J. Carman, engineering and maintenance manager, Huhtamaki Inc. “Over the past few years, Huhtamaki and Schneider have developed a strong partnership based on mutual trust and respect. The need to improve our production capability with well built, designed and robust automation equipment led us to Schneider, over several competitors. Since receiving recognition in a major trade magazine for our initial modernization project with Schneider, Huhtamaki Fulton has initiated more projects with Schneider to improve our competitive position within the paperboard industry.”
Through the 1990’s, the company multiplied its successes in the packaging market by designing unique equipment to address the specialized packaging concerns of its clients, and developed a reputation for building machines of the highest quality.
Richard F. Schneider, founder, director and chairman, is particularly grateful to, and credits much of the company’s success, to its 180-plus employees: "I work with many talented, energetic, creative, and dedicated people whose quality efforts make Schneider Packaging Equipment the success it is today while we aggressively plan for its future. The one constant in our culture is that helping customers achieve outstanding results for their packaging needs by creating custom end-of-line solutions and machinery remains our main goal.”
Along with the anniversary, Schneider has recently added two new staff, effective immediately: working from Florida, though covering all of North America, Mike Peil, technical sales manager with specialization in the tissue market, and; Garth S. Dangerfield, the regional sales manager for the Canadian Field Office in Burlington, Ont.
