Established for more than 50 years and with a reputation for engineering excellence, some organisations might be content to rest on their laurels. Not so worldwide market leaders, SMC.
Continually investing in new product development, SMC strives to meet its customers’ needs through the development of innovative and high-quality products.
Using cost-effective production and logistics methods, it is further supported by local engineering expertise.
Established in Japan in 1959, SMC has pursued a strategy of sustainable global growth and currently has a sales presence in 82 countries, with 51 subsidiaries.
The company opened its UK office in 1978, and since 1998 SMC Pneumatics (UK) Ltd has occupied a purpose-built production, logistics and administration facility on a 14-acre site in Milton Keynes.
The UK office is co-located with one of SMC’s two European Technical Centres, where around 70 design engineers offer specialist technical support to some of their customers in Europe.
