History and Organization

The company was founded in 1974 to provide field service for the sugar industry in Brazil. SMAR’s founders, Mauro Sponchiado and Jose Martinussi, used letters from their surnames to form the company name, SMAR. 

From 1974 to 1981, SMAR mainly focused on the sugar and alcohol industry. Beginning in 1981, the company decided to expand into other markets. As a result, SMAR designed a line of process control instruments. In 1986, it began expanding into foreign markets, introducing its smart pressure and temperature transmitters to the world in 1988 at ISA in Houston. SMAR began selling into the United States in 1989 and into Europe in 1990.

Today SMAR has a major presence in Brazil, and also exports to other countries in South and Central America. SMAR also has a significant presence in the United States and Canada. 

SMAR’s products are designed in Brazil and at two locations in the U.S., with manufacturing in both countries. SMAR uses a network of subsidiaries in all regions and representatives in 60 countries to market and support its products. 

SMAR was among the first companies to sell fieldbus products, and began by selling fieldbus products that incorporated the ISP protocol.

SMAR is privately held.
