Becker SMCBecker/SMC was originally established in 1971 in Huntington, West Virginia. From the beginning, Becker/SMC focused on quality products and service to meet customers’ needs. Becker/SMC designs and manufactures electrical components, open-type and explosion proof motor starters, longwall electrical controls and power distribution equipment for a variety of industries.

Becker/SMC is the industry’s leader in increasingly more sophisticated electrical control systems. Most of the major innovations, design features and specialized electrical components have been developed by Becker/SMC. The success and growth of SMC resulted in seven major facility expansions. Several key acquisitions increased the product lines to include transformers, distribution equipment, and complete lines of vacuum switches, connectors and electronic monitoring devices. Our Custom Equipment Operation can now transform your specifications into precision products, utilizing state of the art parametric engineering and advanced lean manufacturing techniques.
