The Schmitz company is a fourth-generation family business that was established in 1935 in the Netherlands. Foam has always played an important role in our organization.
Having identified the potential of synthetic turf as a sports and leisure surface, we strongly focus our business on this promising market. The demand for our products has made Schmitz the biggest recycler of XLPE foams in the world.
2 state-of-the-art plants
We are proud of our state-of-the-art plants in Coldwater (USA) and Roermond (NL). Both plants are of the highest technical standards and also facilitate the recycling of our shock and drainage pad after its end of application.
Employees in NL & USA
At the Schmitz company we value our 100+ employees based either in Coldwater or Roermond. As a Schmitz employee you are our biggest asset. That is why we are even more proud that our company is successful, innovative and already in its fourth generation. Not only thanks to but also in favour of our employees we value all the developments that the Schmitz company has undergone the early beginnings in 1935.
Experience vs. fresh blood
Our employees represent a good mixture of highly experienced people and recent acquired people. Some of them even have more than 25 years of “Schmitz experience” in the pocket. Within the various departments our people are motivated to think beyond their daily tasks and routines. That keeps us all eager and motivated...besides the passion for foam.
At the Schmitz company we value a good working climate, team spirit and an environment that creates opportunities. Focussing on talent development and staff well-being adds the vital link between the performance of our organization and the performance of our final product.
Our company is fully dedicated to producing top-performance shock and drainage pads to enable athletes and children to live a healthy lifestyle, and to add great value to a safe artificial grass surface.

Similar to the quality products we produce, we also go to great lengths when it comes to providing an inspiring and safe working environment for our employees.
