Our scope of engineering service is a comprehensively and concurrently tailored approach to the respective task.

Using our extensive knowledge gained from practical experience and an economic mind-set, we efficiently and pragmatically transform even complex requirements into intelligent solutions – from start to finish, from development to commissioning of the plant.

SMS conducts the project as a consultant, designer and manufacturer through all project stages: from process layout, engineering, mechanical design, manufacturing and documentation to installation, start-up and after-sales service.

The result is an always optimally coordinated and customized equipment or a system which produces very efficiently end-products of outstanding quality and purity.

The criterion for our quality is the satisfaction of our customers.

In detail our scope of services includes:

  1. Process know-how
  2. Feasibility studies
  3. Test trials in our lab and test centre
