We care about our local communities

We believe in the investment of corporate resources in the local communities where SMC does business, as part of our natural contribution to society’s development

Working with and for our local communities

To give back to the communities that give us so much, we play our part by contributing in the different areas where we operate and support organisations such as:
  • The Wilhelm Leuschner School award-winning bee project. Appropriately trained teachers train pupils to be beekeepers by looking after the 2 bee colonies and to give them better understanding of nature and nature conservation (Egelsbach, Headquarters of SMC Germany)
  • Willen Hospice is official chosen charity of the year for SMC UK and they continue to support various local initiatives in the Milton Keynes community where their headquarters are based
  • SOS Children's Villages, Corona research (2020) Heart & Lung disease research (2019) are the choices of SMC Sweden
  • Annual participation in the Téléthon, organised by the French Association against Myopathies to finance research projects on neuromuscular genetic diseases
  • Special Olympics sponsorship by SMC Austria
  • Retirement house, Jevišovka, supported by SMC Czech Republic
  • Civil association support for disabled girl "Everything for Rebeca", Trávnica, Slovakia
  • Sponsorship of the Technical University Sofia Racing Team by SMC Bulgaria
  • Animal welfare organisation: Orpheus Állatvédő Egyesület, Szeged, funded by SMC Hungary
  • In Japan, the SMC Kamaishi Factory, in Iwate Prefecture, is located relatively close to a residential area. SMC has installed a soundproof wall to reduce noise and provide safety measures.

Emergency response

Natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, fires or earthquakes have a truly devastating effect on a community. That’s why we support several initiatives that offer help to these communities after a natural disaster occurs.
In 2019, SMC made a donation to the “Kamaishi City Rugby Children’s Future Fund” and the “Kamaishi City Sports Promotion Fund”  as part of cooperation for supporting recovery from the earthquake disaster (SMC Tono Factory Japan).
In 2020 and 2021, in response to requests from the governments and companies of various countries, SMC has been supplying products for respirators and mask manufacturing equipment to help combat COVID-19.

Participating in green conservation activities by the greenery trust

SMC participates in green conservation activities organised by the Saitama Greenery Trust Association. SMC employees in Japan take part in weeding, pruning and cleaning activities such as the raking of leaves, and other activities to preserve the local greenery.
