Schroeder America founder Alfred Augustus “Jud” Schroeder passed away at the age of 78 on June 8, 2015 with his family by his side. The company mourns the loss of an employer that filled the role of mentor, father figure and dear friend. We move forward under the guidance and leadership of his brother, President, George Schroeder.
Every company has a foundation and Schroeder America’s foundation is innovation.
Established in July 2006 and located in San Antonio, Texas, Schroeder America is a vertically-integrated manufacturing company specializing in the creation and production of new and improved beverage dispensers. The company is the brainchild of Jud Schroeder, who poured decades of experience into the company. He mixed together a highly talented team of engineers and an industry-leading sales and operations group with the objective of making Schroeder America an innovative and quality manufacturer in the beverage industry.
“The whole purpose of our company and team is to develop innovative products that lead the beverage industry and also to manufacture all components of those products in-house,” says company Chairman and President Jud Schroeder, who also founded and later retired from Lancer Corporation, another leading manufacturer and marketer of beverage dispensing systems. “Whether it is plastic injection molding turned part, vertical and horizontal milling, sheet metal or various other manufacturing processed, we try to conduct all manufacturing, start to finish, internally so that we can ensure the best performance and highest quality possible.”
