SMI has successfully introduced many Manufacturers to the U.S. Market and assisted many of them to achieve their own lasting presence in the U.S. Market.
SMI’s company history goes back to the early sixties of the last century. In 1963 a company was formed as a daughter company to a German manufacturer of propulsion systems. After several moves to different locations, a property north west of the Miami airport was purchased in 1978 and a custom building was built to support the increased demand on U.S. built bow thrusters.
