History

Schneider Industries (SI) was founded in 1993 by Bruce Schneider. Our goal is to assist corporations in managing their surplus assets, including equipment and real estate.

Over the years, Schneider Industries has grown to become one of the most recognized companies in its industry. Our personnel and work ethics combine experience, integrity, transparency, professionalism, creativity, and commitment. These features have helped to make SI the number one choice to manage surplus assets for over 750 companies such General Mills, Anheuser-Busch, Kraft Foods, Grupo Herdez, and Emerson Electric, to name a few.

Our staff is dedicated to professionalism at every stage of each project.
