After his sudden death in 1995 his two sons Michael and Andreas Schmitz continued the business.

In 2000 the business form was changed from a private enterprise into a GmbH. The management decided in 2002 to build a new company building in the industrial area Königskamp in Jülich because of the positive business development. In 2005, the company was expanded again by a production hall.
