A Different Kind of Career
Our greatest strength is our people.
SMC Global employees possess experience, expertise and insights into the chemicals we supply and the markets we serve. We develop deep relationships with our customers to help them succeed in the often-volatile markets they serve.
Our strength, creativity, and energy is focused on helping and supporting our community – our customers, partners, suppliers, and employees – as they reach their individual goals and objectives. We know that our continuing success is built on every interaction that we have with this community. We listen to our employees and put you in the strongest position so that you can succeed in a tough environment.
Yet, we are small enough to think creatively to solve any problem, no matter the size. Every order, conversation, and transaction gets the highest attention. Our company is big enough to maintain low cost supply chains, so that we can provide products to our customers that add value and allow us to invest in improving our offerings.

Our team is small but growing. We work harder and more creatively than the “big brands” to be more agile when serving our customers. We know that many of you working in the chemical industry today are frustrated. You have great ideas and expertise, but you may find yourself stuck in a job with a company that can’t or won’t make the best use of your talents.
If you are looking for an opportunity to grow in the chemical industry, or if you are entrepreneurial and have significant product expertise, we are interested in demonstrating how “a different kind of chemistry” may work for you!
We are looking to partner with and promote the ideas of people in the chemical industry who are looking for an exciting challenge. We need your expertise to continue our expansion. Areas of interest are Oilfield Services, Paints & Coatings, Agriculture, Mining, Plating & Electronics, and Chemical Intermediates, as well as Resins & Adhesives, Textiles, Pulp & Paper and Color Imaging. We are also interested in expanding into India, South America, and Eastern Europe.
