This niche market strategy fosters stability and longevity and enables the companies to leverage their technical and brand equity to compete effectively on a global basis. While each company has the necessary resources and staff to carry out their mission, they derive value from the increased critical mass and sustainability of the collective organization of The Smithers Group. They benefit from the group through a stronger financial base, solid infrastructure, and economies of scale.

It is the strategy of The Smithers Group and its management to achieve long-term growth in each of the individual business areas, reinforced by an ongoing reinvestment in those businesses. At the same time, the diversified nature of the industries served by our organizations tempers the effects of economic swings in any individual sector, contributing to the overall health and stability of the group.

While each company derives its independence from the technologies employed and the markets served, we share a common vision and philosophy about business, people, ethics, and service.

Smithers offers a wide range of management system audits from certification services to custom-designed supply chain solutions to help your organization pursue excellence.

If you are seeking to improve your quality or environmental management system with certification to internationally recognized standards – Smithers has the expertise and industry knowledge you require in an auditor.

We hold accreditations from the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) and the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) to audit and certify organizations as a third party registrar. Each of our highly experienced and knowledgeable auditors is hand picked for each client to ensure a thorough assessment that is tailored to your organization’s industry. We provide worksheets and materials to help you become prepared and ready for your assessment.

The benefits to your certification continue well beyond the audit. Your auditor will act as your account manager and you will have direct contact with him or her before and after the assessment. Our staff is always readily available to answer any questions you may have about the standards or certification process. You will gain access to our free Customer Portal which houses valuable information, whitepapers, and training documents you can use to educate your staff.

  • Improve efficiency, consistency, and documentation of internal processes
