sm contact designs and produces equipment
for electrical connections manufacturing

We analyze customer’s components, evaluate connectors design
and produce a machine for its particular needs.

Team

SM Contact origins from 20 cities in 5 countries and up to 60% consists of engineers. We are mostly brunettes, but proud of two redheads in the Russian office. Most of us were born on Monday and just one on Saturday. The team shares equally with those who love wine, and those who prefer vodka. When we are not available for you (it’s really a shame!), we ride bikes, dance and go fishing. Who knows what it means, but only 32% of us leave a crust of pizza uneaten. That’s just who we are!
