It had been the machinery industry itself that showed the founder of this company (H.P. Schmitz) in the early 1960s the improvement needs required by the customers, worldwide. Core Winding Belts for spiral winding machinery had been a problem child. Indeed, there had been less suitable materials on the market, however, the customers required for improvements with respect to the quality improvement, the cost savings and the increase of the production.

The very early-formed association of the family companies HPS/AFH/THURINGIA led very quickly to the situation that customers, worldwide, could order the right materials. For this have been standing, up to this date, the maxim of individual advice, a consistently good quality, but also a permanent adaption to production-related requirements.

Now for more than 50 years.
