Close to customers right from the start

Now, as in the last four generations, the family-owned SMS group has built its corporate culture on clear goals and structures. It was Carl Eberhard Weiss who started this tradition when he founded the company in Siegen (Siegerland, Germany) back in 1871.

Acquisitions, innovations, and a constant commitment to meet the expectations of our customers have helped us grow successfully over 140 years.
