It’s hard to believe that 2015 marks the Smithers Group’s 90th year in business. In that time, the world has seen the invention of the television, cheered for the first flight across the Atlantic, learned about the travels of Ghandi, marveled at the construction of the tallest buildings in the word and welcomed the World Wide Web with a sweeping digital era since the company was founded as Smithers Laboratories in 1925. Crain’s Cleveland recently told the story, about how Smithers has “transformed into a global entity with a highly educated workforce that caters more to the tire industry than ever before.”

Since Michael Hochschwender took the helm as CEO 13 years ago, the Smithers Group has undergone explosive diversification, expanding to a total of six different business groups in three different continents. Today, the company remains a global testing, consulting and information service company that’s more committed to customers than ever before.

At Smithers Quality Assessments, we’re grateful to those that have been part of our path over the years, proud of every individual that has made a difference with the Smithers Group and excited to work with all those that help us continue the story.
