About us

History of SMS group USA

January 2018 – SMS group joined together North American OEM and Technical Services companies of SMS USA and SMS Technical Services. This merger gives SMS group a larger and more unified presence in the North American metal industry.

The beginnings of SMS group in North America can be traced back over 100 years. It all began with American original equipment manufacturers such as Aetna Standard, Oilwell Supply Company, and Sutton Engineering. Back then, as today, our core value has always been great service with a smile. And that hasn't changed since the 1950's, when our predecessor companies Acutus, Gladwin, and Millcraft Products started providing maintenance services for the metals and mining industries. What fueled the growth of these companies was the advent and rise of continuous casting in North America.
