At Smiths we have never stood still. For more than 170 years, our passion for technology and excellence has moved the world forward; solving problems and creating new opportunities through smarter engineering. How do we do it?
We are pioneers of global progress
Smiths designs, manufactures and delivers smarter engineering solutions for mission-critical applications, solving some of the toughest problems for our customers, our communities and our world.
While the modern, global business we are today is very different to where we started in 1851, our ethos has remained the same – progress driven by innovation, thinking differently and, most importantly, delivering for our customers and our people.
It is an exciting time in Smiths history – we are leveraging our strengths to improve our world.Our strategy and business model
Improving our world through smarter engineering has been our purpose for more than 170 years. Today our world puts enormous opportunities in front of us – decarbonisation innovation empowering a greener future, detection technologies enabling greater safety with faster throughput, and connectivity solutions supporting our inexorable demand for more and faster data. As we have been doing for close to two centuries, we are working arm-in-arm with our customers to access these global megatrends.
Our track record is strong, our culture is bold and our future is exciting.
Three global megatrends are shaping our world view
Enhancing data transmission
Demand for data is continually increasing as the world becomes more connected and computing power expands. Faster data transmission, greater bandwidth and augmented processing power are required across many sectors.
