For the second year running, SMC Pneumatics has been voted one of the top 100 most innovative companies in the world by leading business magazine, Forbes. The only pneumatics company to make the prestigious list, SMC – which has an office in Milton Keynes, employing around 300 people – has secured its place based on its commitment to R&D, re-investment and overall financial performance.
The news follows SMC’s recent announcement that it is to increase its investment in R&D during 2013 by almost 2 per cent, to €144 millon. With technical centres in the UK and Germany, as well as Japan, China and the USA, SMC launches around 40 new products to the European market every year. The company employs some 15,000 people worldwide.

SMC’s Product Promotions Manager, Pete Humphreys, said: “It’s a real honour to have made the Forbes list for the second consecutive year. It is testament to the hard work, enthusiasm and customer-focused professionalism of our teams across the world that we’re able to demonstrate our continuing commitment to innovation.” 

From its original pneumatics roots 53 years ago, SMC now has a team of 1,400 R&D engineers and offers over 11,000 basic products with more than 620,000 variations. Over the years, the company has extended its product range from basic pneumatic components through to specialist products such as dryer/chillers, easy-to-programme electric actuators, ionizers as well as process control and instrumentation components.
