Soon after Smithers celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1975, efforts began to expand the company’s physical presence outside the confines of Akron, Ohio. The first facility located outside of Akron that was established was a tire and automotive testing lab in nearby Ravenna, Ohio. Next, a world class winter testing facility was acquired in northern Michigan, allowing Smithers experts to test tires and automobiles against wintery conditions. During this time of growth, Smithers also added comprehensive five-year market forecast reports to its areas of expertise as well.
In 1993, Smithers celebrated the launch of Smithers Quality Assessments. The brand-new division began by offering third-party quality systems audits and certification services to ISO 9000 standards. The Quality Assessments division has since expanded its offerings to include certifications in numerous internationally recognized standards.
