How We Got Started and What We Believe
It all began with a vision 19 years ago in 2004!
We believe the highest levels of patient comfort can be achieved with simple American-made products of maximum quality. Our “Simple is Always Better” concept continues to be brought to life by designing, manufacturing, and distributing superior post-operative patient care products.
Simple Is Always Better!
Our vision began in 2004 when we set out to provide a solution to the common problem, “why does cold therapy have to be such a hassle for patients and clinicians?” The answer we created combines the clinical effectiveness of electric cooling machines with the simplicity of a gel wrap. The result was the first and only product that provides exceptional patient care, increased staff efficiency, and unmatched clinical results. Our products are now being used by over 475 programs as we continue to grow our “Simple is Always Better” concept.
To provide the highest levels of patient care with our American-made products that combine clinical efficacy with simplicity while supporting the comfort of our customers, community and employees.
SMI was founded in 2004 by two gentlemen that had passion for manufacturing & post-operative healthcare product sales. Once the need for a simple solution to post-op pain control was identified, production began in a founder’s basement north of Pittsburgh, PA.
In 2006, SMI moved into their first dedicated manufacturing facility in Butler, PA. Continued growth allowed us to build a corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility in Rocky Mount, VA in 2011. Our geographical proximity along with direct distribution allows our products to be at our customer facilities without ever having a backorder, in as little as two days. Proud to say our products are Made in the USA, we take pride in creating jobs for so many individuals in the textile and packaging fields.
In 2021, SMI moved into a 25,000 square foot building expansion that will allow us to continue to serve our customers, grow our manufacturing capabilities, and provide more career opportunities within our community.
