Gaming enthusiasm with a tradition

Basically, the initial impetus for the founding of our company goes back around 50 years. Back then, uncle Gebhard opened the door to the world of gaming for psmtec's managing director Anton Schmid, who was ten years old at the time. His passion was immediately sparked. It has been shared since his childhood by the founder's son Peter Schmid, who is now also a psmtec managing director. Building on their business experience from a second family business as well as their private enthusiasm for everything to do with games and slot machines, they founded psmtec in 2007, laying the foundation for today's success
