Who We Are
SM Magnetics is committed to advanced thinking in magnetic design and solutions with a core focus in permanent magnets and magnetic assemblies. Our ability to apply our magnetics expertise and resources allows us to quickly understand an application and its requirements beyond a typical magnetics company.
SM Magnetics began in 2014 out of the expansion and growth of the custom magnet and magnetic assembly business of SuperMagnetMan which has been a well-known online magnet resource and retailer for over 15 years. With our online retail business SuperMagnetMan, we are able to quickly provide prototyping magnets and magnetic assemblies for testing.
Who We Are Today
Our goal is and has always been to work with every customer and supplier as a partner. It is important to treat everyone along the entire supply chain with respect and professionalism. We know that listening and asking questions is critical to finding the right magnet solutions. We pursue these solutions with advanced thinking and a use of technology advancements to optimize the magnetics within an application.
We have assisted customers in virtually every industry and have counseled customers in some of the most complex magnet applications known. Our customers have come to rely on us for assistance in material selection, design, innovation, creativity, and knowledge in permanent magnets. We are committed to our “Customer as Partners” philosophy, and repeatedly have our customers tell us that we “think differently and provide solutions.”
