SMC serves the entire United States and now Canada, as well as a growing export market, particularly in the handling of dry pet foods in Australia, the United Kingdom and S.E. Asia.
SMC originated in 1859 under the name Philip Smith Manufacturing and then the Sidney Grain Machinery Company. In 1966, Sidney Grain Machinery Company ceased business but the product line continued under a newly formed Sidney Grain Machine Inc. In 1990, the name was changed to Sidney Manufacturing Company (SMC) to remove the word “grain” from the company name to better identify with the markets being served and to gain further identity in other material handling industries. SMC are now the oldest and longest continuous manufacturing company in Shelby County, Ohio; a community with a history of century old business.
SMC’s product line covers a variety of wet and dry bulk material handling equipment, such as Side Wall Return Drag Conveyors, Bucket Elevators, Distributors and Gates & Valves. They also manufacture a line of industrial personnel elevators from 300 lbs. capacity to 1000 lbs. capacity.
