About Us

On a Mission to Serve You

Our mission is to make our customers successful by providing cutting-edge solutions and quality products. In doing so, we contribute to the health and safety of our customers, their employees, the public and the environment. We have the best solutions in the industry, and we are driven by our desire to be fair, honest and flexible.

The Service You Expect and Deserve

We started off as a small welding supply company in 1950. Since that time, S.J. Smith has been focused on providing individualized service to each one of our customers. We’ve never lost sight of that mission, to provide top-notch service to all our customers, large and small.

Over the last 70 years, S.J. Smith has evolved into a dynamic problem-solving organization that uses the latest technology to help us serve our customers. Whether your organization needs engineered laser gas installations, mobile app cylinder tracking capabilities, micro-bulk technology, weld training specific to your needs or certified equipment repair, S.J. Smith has the training, experience and drive to help you find the best solutions to meet your needs. 

We treat our customers and vendors with professionalism, responsiveness and honesty. We serve our business partners by adding value to their organization and have demonstrated our commitment to continuous improvement, innovation and mutual satisfaction. We work and live by our values of honesty and integrity, safety and customer-driven excellence. Our customers expect zero errors, prompt responses and sound problem-solving advice — and we deliver.


It has been a great experience for Erie High School and myself in dealing with S.J. Smith and Mike Gay. Mike's knowledge and dedication to his trade is a valued asset to S.J. Smith and has benefited myself and Erie School District immensely. Tod McCullough, Industrial Technology Instructor, Erie High School, Erie, Ill., July 2019
