Over following years, they built single-line and multiple-line packaging machines for sticks filled with liquid, powder, granular, cream and gel products. The growing demand of multinational enterprises, alongside experiments on cutting-edge prototypes, convinced the company to diversify the reference markets to include:
which boosted its growth impressively. Today, Schmucker employs 80 people and its turnover in 2017 was 10,5 million Euro, with a share of 80% in exports.
Schmucker has been manufacturing tailor-made machines, designing them together with its customers:customization and flexibility are company's points of strength.

Schmucker multi-lane machines consist of independent units – vertical and horizontal sealing bar; pre-cut unit; which are designed and manufactured accordingly to the “fast release” concept, that is based on SMED (Single Minute Exchange of Die) methodology, which allows the fast dismantling of the various parts of the machine and doesn’t need any tools. Furthermore, Schmucker periodically updates the machines design to meet the eight pillars of TPM (Total Productive Maintenance), the system conceived to keep integrity and quality of production, processes and personnel at the highest levels, improving the equipment general efficiency.
