Thank you for checking out the shiny brand new Smiths newsletter. In the coming months, we’ll be keeping you up to date on all the latest and greatest tech in the elements and controls world along with what’s going on at your favourite element and controls supplier, Smiths!

In this first letter, we wanted to take the opportunity to do what everyone enjoys… Talking about ourselves!

Smiths operates on a set of core values, Growth, Family and Integrity. These values define our culture, how we operate day to day and guide our business strategy. We’re sure you can relate to these values that we live by so here is a brief explanation.

We strive for positive growth. We use solution focused, forward thinking to help us day to day. We apply creative and innovative solutions to hurdles and have an open-minded environment to encourage bold and brave decision making.

We are Family at our core (no corporate silliness here). We trust each other to get the task done and take pride in our work. Teamwork isn’t just a word, it’s a philosophy and last but by no means least, we have FUN!

We act with integrity in all we do. We work to the highest standards and strive to be honest and open with all.

We love working with companies that share our values and appreciate you getting to know us a little better. If there’s anything we can do to serve you better let us know and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

Have you ever wondered how our amazing warehouse team at Smiths can pack all your items and get them shipped to you that same day? Well, we have a (not so) secret weapon. Smiths is a proud partner of Achievement House!

Achievement House is a charitable organization that’s open to anyone between 16 and 64 years of age who are unable to follow the normal pursuits of daily living because of educational, social or psychological difficulties as a result of illness, accident or congenital disorders. They offer an environment with varied and appropriate work for people with a disability and also a pathway to develop employment skills (of clients who are capable of moving) towards temporary or permanent open employment for those wanting it.

Social responsibility falls under our “Family” core value and we’re very proud we’re able to support Achievement House and our local community.

If you share our stance on social responsibility and would like information on Achievement House please let us know, we’ll be happy to put you in touch.
