Wholesalers for bookbindinding and conservation supplies

For more than 100 years Schmedt has been a reliable partner for the bookbinding industry. More than 10.000 different products are shipped worldwide. The huge high-bay warehouse and a modern merchandise management system allow a response time of 24 hours between order and shipment.
For many years, Schmedt has been publishing a printed catalogue offering a good overview of the products. The online shop allows ordering 24/7 and provides videos and other important information.
The materials, tools and consumables offered perfectly complement the production of books with Schmedt´s bookbinding machines.


The manufacturing of bookbinding machines

Ever since the beginning of the 1960s, Schmedt has been manufacturing machines for the bookbinding industry. The first machines were developed together with bookbinders. The main focus was - and still is - on constructing machines suitable for short-run and medium-size production, i.e. machines to handle different formats without setup times.
The machines are manufactured on a high-quality level with the latest production machines in a modern factory.
The machine range covers the complete production process of hardcover books: block and case-making, block and case finishing, hot-foil stamping as well as casing-in and joint-setting. Videos showing all machines in operation are provided on our YouTube channel or may be seen in our demo center.
