Providing Excellence for over 50 years.

Industry Specialists

From our early days as manufacturers and shipping household appliances, our values have always been guided by our people, which is why we always look for locations that feel right for us first. Places that have good transport links, a sense of community and meet sustainability standards.

SMC provide contemporarily designed homes that stand the test of time. Our conviction to deliver the best quality and always with a personal touch is what has driven our family business since 1952. A family business for 50 years, our values have always been guided by our people, which is why we always look for locations we would like to live in. Communities that have good transport links and meet sustainability standards as well as improving housing for London.

SMC founded in Hong Kong:

Originally launched as a family manufacturing company in Hong Kong, SMC began by developing electrical appliances and later diversified the business extensively from consumer electrical appliances manufacturing to contract manufacturing of technology products, semiconductor fabrications, software development, rental car and taxi fleet operations and property development and investments. The business has extended from Hong Kong to worldwide.

SMC Property incorporated, diversifying into developing property, specialing in the West London area. SMC maintains healthy growth in its core traditional product manufacturing business.

SMC Property has created 33 new homes since 2015 with 110 in the immediate pipeline. The team is split between London and Hong Kong and is growing rapidly as more sites are acquired and optimised.

Contemporary conscious homes

We build and design with the environment in mind, always conscious of our surrounding landscape and what we can do to improve on residents’ wellbeing and aim to incorporate building health and our environmental impact into our development strategies.

“In 2018 we moved with the family from The Netherlands to the UK. That in itself is already pretty challenging, but finding a house for our family was for sure our biggest challenge. Over the last 3.5 years 1 Wayford Terrace has really been a great home to us. We couldn’t have found a better landlord in SMC. They went out of their way to make sure we felt at home and had everything we needed. Kerri and Laura have been incredible. They responded so quickly to every question we had and have been nothing but good to us.”
