Expertise since 1975
Smans was established in 1975 by Norbert Smans. The company soon started concentrating on electronics (SMT) and cable assembly. This focus allowed Smans to gain enormous expertise.

In 2017 the continuity of the company was assured by a management buy-out with CEO Jan Van Lieshout, technical director Nick Janssens and sales director Aad Vermaat as new partners.
