Speciaal Metaal Industrie Dokkum B.V. was founded in 1980 by mister Jelle Jelsma and mister Gabe Spijksma. The company functions as the headquarters and is the starting point of many national and international projects before shipped to one of our daughter companies or customers. In 2003 Delft Instruments in Leeuwarden was acquired and a sheet metal shop was formed under the name SMI Plaatwerk. With the creation of the sheet metal shop, SMI is able to offer the complete metalworking service. While both companies have become specialist in their own area of expertise, a perfect synergy has been created. This gives customers the possibility to have one contractor without the need of subcontractors.
SMI Core Business
In 2005 it was decided to change the name from SMI Dokkum to SMI Verspaning and SMI Constructie. SMI machining focuses on small and mid-sized series of parts and subassemblies and SMI Constructie focuses on construction works and apparatus engineering of steel, stainless steel and aluminium. The different departments of SMI are placed on the market as SMI Groep since 2005. The market approach is offering the individual specialisations separately and combined. SMI is active on the Dutch market, as well as on international markets, for example in Germany and Belgium.
