I have a very difficult client which wants all the documents in specific size and searchable. As I am reaceiving different files from suppliers I have to reprint all the documents to meat size requirements. My problem is afterwards that even document is saying it's searchable (before and after running OCR), I can't find enything when using "Find".

Do you have advice how to solve this?

It sounds like you're taking the wrong approach. If the document is searchable before you re-print and alter the size, then somehting you are doing is rasterizing the files and making them non-searchable. There should be no need to run OCR on these files if they began as searchable files.

Don't print the documents. Use the available tools in Acrobat Pro.

Printing PDF-to-PDF is a disaster. Don't be tempted to use it as a "quick fix" for any issue of any kind.
