Noblesville, IN – The machine in a factory is made in a factory with parts made in a factory. The automated equipment necessary to build everything from the cars we drive to the semi-conductors in our electronic devices is typically pneumatic equipment, which utilizes compressed air to move objects or apply force.

SMC Corporation of America specializes in the manufacture and distribution of this essential pneumatic equipment. Recognized by Forbes Magazine among the 100 Most Innovative Companies in the World, SMC Corporation supplies all the components necessary for a fully-functional pneumatic system for industrial automation.

“Any type of factory automation can benefit from pneumatic componentry,” says John Halvorsen, SMC Corporation’s director of marketing. “Pneumatic components offer a number of advantages, but the most important is that they are simpler."

SMC Corporation of America was founded in 1977, initially selling only a small line of components. Through long-term relationships and working closely with their customers, the company has diversified its product line to include temperature controls and sensors.

"If we can offer customers other products they can reduce their number of suppliers and we can cover our R&D expenses and continue to innovate,” says Halvorsen.

SMC’s commitment to innovation continues to this day with its new line of energy efficient products to reduce their customers’ total operating costs.

“We take a standard product the industry says is good enough and make it better,” says Halvorsen. “What makes SMC unique is we’re never satisfied with the quality of our products. We always want to make them better to provide the best value for our customers.”
