Portrait

Schneider & Co

Since 1927 the name  Schneider & Co. stands for high value and innovative wire products and closures for the Wine and Champagne industries. Already in 1939 we exported our first “Wirehoods” for Champagne bottles to the USA. In the 60’s, with the start of production at our Bad Kreuznach factory, the renowned “Schneider Standard“ became an Industrial Standard.

Since then our product range has been continuously developed to suite our customers changing requirements and technical developments.  During the 80’s, Conveying and handling plants for Cellars for our products were introduced to the market. In 2004 we supplied our first high speed cord closure machine.

With the investment in I.C.A.S., Italy and  H.I.T.E., Spain, in 1977, we clearly extended our Global presence.  Together with our Sales companies, our world wide representations and agencies, we are market leaders on all continents in the relevant markets.

The development and production of Wirehoods and capsules for Champagne, Sparkling wine, Prosecco and Wine as well as the technical support to the Cellars, in their application of our products, are the significant pillars of our business. Experience, technical Know-how and a competent Service, which from the consultancy through to the installation of our conveyor and handling systems as well as our Closure systems, offers individual and efficient solutions for our customers.
