We encourage innovation and we encourage our Associates to make positive contributions, we encourage participation, openness and honesty, respect, focus on the task at hand, energy and encourage each Associate to enjoy his/her working experience at Smiths.

We pride ourselves in the manner that we communicate with all our Associates as it is a fundamental belief of ours that each Associate must be fully informed about Smiths Manufacturing. Open communication is strongly encouraged.
