In 1973, Siegfried Heilmann and Fritz Haller founded “Gemminger Maschinenbau GmbH” (GMG), laying the foundation for today’s Schuler plant in Gemmingen. Initially, the business focused on manufacturing and selling special machines, feeding and linking systems, and automating machine tools. Today, Gemmingen serves as the competence center for press line automation, hydraulic systems, and equipment within the Schuler Group, to which the site has belonged since 1989.

1973 also marked the year when Schuler acquired “SMG Süddeutsche Maschinenbau Gesellschaft mbH” in Waghäusel, expanding its expertise to include all aspects of hydraulic presses and systems. Since April 2021, Schuler’s hydraulics business in Germany has been consolidated in Gemmingen.

On 15 Dec 2023, approximately 330 employees celebrated the anniversary of their location and hydraulics technology with a Christmas family party.

“Schuler can look back on a long tradition in Gemmingen,” says Klaus Linnig, managing director, head of the automotive division, and responsible for the Gemmingen site. “With its combination of presses, hydraulics, automation, service, and in-house production, the site plays a key role within the Schuler Group. My thanks go to all our employees, who have made a significant contribution to this with their knowledge and commitment.”
