SMS break down barriers to manufacturing, engineering and technical innovation.
We create fulfilment partnerships which combine expertise, market leading practices, processes and technologies and offer access to global supply chains.
Our smart supply chain reduces risk and cost and creates competitive advantage by accelerating time-to-market, giving more time-in-the-market.
SMS’ goal is simple: to provide local, regional and global customers with specialised services and capabilities close to their own facilities and end markets.
With almost 100 years of industry know-how, SMS nurtures innovation, offering customers tailored solutions for their complex, highly-diversified business.
SMS is a privately owned, financially stable company led by our industry and customers, not the stock market. That means our management team are accessible, agile and flexible, with the power to make fast investment decisions whilst remaining responsive to industry change.
Given the complexity and risk associated with product introduction, SMS understand that established and emerging companies need to harness innovation to create competitive advantage and maintain pricing strength.
As a major outsourcing partner, we provide services which enable companies to successfully innovate, create, and gain access to new markets, whilst protecting their IP.
From concept to creation to commercialisation to consumer, SMS expertly guides Aerospace and Defence, Communication, Industrial and Medical OEM customers through the production lifecycle, combining the advantages of a vertically integrated service offering, with the benefits of a local manufacturing base.
SMS has made a commitment and investment to operate with the agility and flexibility of a Tier II / Tier III player, with the technology engine of a Tier I EMS company. Unlike many of the local Tier II and Tier III EMS players in the region, SMS is not focused on specific niche markets or segments. SMS serves customers across all major markets and works with a diverse customer base, from start-ups to established leading household brand names. For both, speed-to-market counts.
