History of SMC Business Councils

From Post-WWII Challenges to Present Day Triumphs for Small Business

SMC Business Councils’ (SMC) storied history began nearly 75 years ago as an alliance of smaller manufacturers pursuing World War II contracts. During the decline in manufacturing and the emergence of high technology in the 1980s, SMC added B2B companies, non-profits, professional services companies and other small businesses to its membership ranks. As the region’s manufacturing base has become stronger due to increased entrepreneurship, investment from overseas firms and re-shoring from China and elsewhere, SMC is poised, now more than ever, to capture the attention of prospective members with an exciting wide range of servicesnetworking opportunities and more. Join Now! SMC is where you belong.
