Since 1987 SMB Schwede Maschinenbau deals exclusively with strapping technology in the field of narrow band strapping for the processing of plastic strapping of PP and PET materials with widths of 5 to 15 mm.

We started in the graphics industry, especially in the extremely demanding newspaper production. Highest availability and reliability, longevity and economic efficiency have established the good reputation of our products and our market position as one of the leading manufacturers of high performance strapping machines.

SMB has been part of the Signode group of companies since 2017. In order to be able to meet our customer needs even better and to be closer to the customer, we merged our previously legally independent companies in July 2021 to simplify the processes. Our corporate vision “One Signode” will thus optimally contribute our global know-how in the area of service, spare parts and individual customer projects.

Over the years, we have continuously expanded our product portfolio. Therefore, we can offer the right solution today with our modular product range for the strapping of a wide range of products in a wide variety of industries.

However, high-quality machines are only one part of our comprehensive service catalog:

  • careful analysis of the task
  • customer-specific configuration
  • timely delivery
  • installation and commissioning
  • efficient training of operators and service technicians
  • qualified customer service
  • permanently reliable supply of spare parts

It is the combination of these factors that ensures the long-term profitability of your investment, which is at the center of all our activities. That’s why we work hard and place high demands on ourselves and our employees, but also on our suppliers and distribution partners.

Our products are developed and produced at the location in Goldkronach. We fully rely on the many years of extensive expertise of our employees. Our commitment to our region of Upper Franconia as a local employer is very important to us.

We sell our products worldwide – together with our partner companies. You are very likely to find an SMB machine in every country in the world. We are currently active in sales in the green marked markets.
