As the world leader in pneumatic technology, our expertise ensures that we provide our customers with high quality innovative products that deliver the highest performance in the field of industrial automation.
From our origins in Japan in 1959, in just 50 years we have grown into the world’s leading manufacturer of pneumatic equipment and automation components, operating in 78 nations throughout the world with major manufacturing and warehouse facilities in Asia, the USA and Europe.
Each year – thanks to our formidable team of over 1,400 R&D personnel and our financial investment in future technology – we develop leading edge solutions which are designed to help our customers stay on top of their game. This investment into R&D has been recognised by the leading business magazine, Forbes, who has ranked SMC as one of the top 100 most innovative companies in the world, for three consecutive years.
Being the world leader in pneumatics, we take pride in offering an extensive range of high quality pneumatic products; however, automation requires non-pneumatic solutions as well. This has resulted in the development of products such as electric actuators, thermo-chillers, ionisers, ultra high purity gas and fluid control equipment, allowing SMC to offer a total solutions package.
Our overall objective is to offer the highest level of support to our customers and become their sole automation supplier. This is supported by the fact that SMC has an impressive range of 12,000 basic products with over 700,000 product variations.
With the dawn of Industry 4.0 we hope you agree that we are the “smart solution”.
