At an industry conference in 2019, five strangers sat together during a coffee break; three Fortune 500 industry executives, and two entrepreneurs. The group of five hit it off personally and started talking about the business challenges facing each of them. As a surprise to each of them, they all fought the same challenges:
• Who do you use for Co-Packing, Packaging?
• Who do you use for warehousing and transportation?
• Who is doing your e-commerce?
• Who can we trust to keep the pricing affordable and meet deadlines?
There were no answers that any of them felt comfortable giving recommendations to; all were faced with the same conclusions. The big challenges were too big, the small challenges too small, with not one demonstration of TRUE PARTNERSHIP and PROBLEM-SOLVING.
After a few moments of pondering coupled with deep discussion, SMT was born. We launched our business right in the throws of the unknowns brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. But that couldn’t stop us!
As a result of our collective experiences, we already knew of the growing need in the market for sincere, honest, problem solvers to assist manufacturers through this challenging point in history. It created an opportunity, and a desire, to vertically integrate our businesses in a time when it was most needed.
And the name SMT? Simply created at Five Guys restaurant: Supporting, Motivating, Trustworthy = SMT Packaging and Logistics.
Collectively, our leadership team of five has over 100 years of CPG experience and we look forward to meeting your business needs. The differentiator with SMT Packaging is partnership; while others talk the talk, we walk the walk!
I want to thank you for your outstanding service, responsiveness and problem solving in our projects, recent and past. Whether it is in contract packaging, production, logistics/warehousing, not only in the CPG side of our business, but also in the OTC and HBC businesses. The measure of a good company is on time, on budget delivery of goods and services.
