Product & Supply
SMC currently offers over 11,300 basic products with over 560,000 variations. Continuous investment in production and supply chain improvements ensure that these products are available to you when you need them.
The SMC Now! program is an important part of this supply chain system. The program identifies product series and options that are commonly used in the local market. These products are then made available through aggressive local inventory of base components which can be quickly accessorised to offer a broad range of finished product options. Increased local production capabilities ensure that additional products and options as well as sudden increases in demand are quickly manufactured and shipped. Overall, this gives SMC the ability to offer and supply the most comprehensive product range available in North America.
