In 1981, a family organisation was founded to deliver unrivalled PPE and Workwear products to key industries, nationally. Since that time, SMI has evolved to become one of the UK’s leading importers and distributors of Workwear & PPE. Retaining our family values, the third generation of SMI’s founders took over the business in 2011, and we have grown rapidly ever since.
The Supply Lifeline to Britain’s Workforce
We’re making vital workplace products more accessible, more affordable and more sustainable through our everyday investment in people and innovation.
TWO LEADING PPE BRANDS JOIN FORCES
In October 2021, SMI announced that Swift360 was joining the SMI family as part of our ongoing commitment to invest in innovation and continuous improvement. Since then, our dedicated teams have prioritised building a better business together, for you.
In August of this year, we merged our offices into our NEW Corporate Head Office, located in Petersfield. This step was one of our many ways to drive the positive steps needed to streamline our processes, products, and services.
A STONGER PRODUCT RANGE
SMI's range of products has increased by 25% as a result of bringing the businesses together.
As a leading supplier of workwear, site safety, PPE and janitorial supplies to the Waste, Logistics & Warehousing, Public and Support Sectors, we have thousands of products to keep you and your employees safe and compliant in the workplace.
Our product range is constantly evolving around our clients' needs, and as an extension of your procurement team, SMI help reduce time, cost and even our customers carbon footprint, which is why many of our customers have stayed with us for over 20 years.
