SMB Schönebecker Maschinenbau GmbH

In the last few years, the demand for machinery and plant construction in the permanently busy Dessau location has increased so strongly that new capacities have to be found. In March 2006, the former tractor plant was taken over in Schönebeck/ Elbe. TM Verwaltungs GmbH founded SMB Schönebecker Maschinenbau GmbH on 28 March 2006.

Complex steel construction up to 80 tons

After a 6-month rebuilding phase and an investment of 5 million euros in two new production lines, steel tower production was started in the autumn of 2006. At the same time, the production of lightweight steel assemblies and special chassis with 60 employees in Schönebeck was continued, optimized and expanded.

Steel towers for wind turbine generators and equipment for special-purpose machines

More than 100 employees currently working on an area of c. 40.000 m² and complete c. 200,000 production hours for the steel tower construction annually. The sister companies GSD Großanlagen- und Schwermaschinenbau Dessau GmbH and SMB Schönebecker Maschinenbau GmbH operating within the TMGROUP and complement each other in a practically symbiotic way as a manufacturing community. Thus they are able to fulfill the complex requirements of our customers flexible at any time in individual orders as well as in project business, especially in the field of final assembly and service. In addition, the Schönebeck site has further growth reserves.
