In 1981, a family organisation was founded to deliver unrivalled PPE and Workwear products to key industries, nationally. Since that time, SMI has evolved to become one of the UK’s leading importers and distributors of Workwear & PPE. Retaining our family values, the third generation of SMI’s founders took over the business in 2011, and we have grown rapidly ever since.
We are not different people at work and at home; theres a human behind every job title and we give everyone the opportunity to bring all of themselves to work.
Each person has their unique set of personal and professional qualities, and our culture allows everyone to thrive, to be their best, and to have fun.
We all belong in this organisation; we feel accepted and valued. As a result, we all understand our purpose in the business and how important it is. We are connected by a common goal, working together to achieve our core vision and mission.
As a result, we communicate and collaborate more; we are engaged
and we are connected to each other and our customers.
We count on each other to do the job on time and to the best of our ability.
We are accountable and reliable. Our customers depend on us to deliver every single day; we don't let them down.
We're agile, quick and decisive. We adapt rapidly to internal changes and market dynamics.
We measure impact and outcome, not just activity. We deliver on time in every aspect of our role.
We encourage and enable everyone to bring their strengths to the table, creating an energy and a passion that produces exceptional results.
We're adaptable and creative and we are given the opportunity to find solutions, improve processes and drive innovation.

With continued plans to reduce our carbon footprint, SMI have decided to launch our first Made in Europe range of Rokwear products. Having these products made closer to home will help reduce our emissions and provide a quicker lead time for our customers – whilst still delivering style, comfort and performance.
We’re going to take a look at the various benefits associated with choosing a complete Workwear Solution package, consolidating your purchasing of essential PPE and Workwear.
