Smiths Group PLC Company Background

SectorIndustrials
ActivitiesWith its start as a London jeweler in the 19th century, Smiths Group has for most of its history operated as a company operating disparate but economically attractive businesses. Thematically, it runs businesses that manufacture niche products in security- or safety-sensitive industries. Today, Smiths Group is split across five divisions: mechanical seals, medical supplies, weapons detection, electrical connectors, and specialized hoses. The end customers for these products include airports, NASA, government security or defense departments, and hospitals. Medical is slated for a sale or spin-off.
