SMC was a successful regional EMS company from 1994 to 2007, providing full service EMS and systems integration solutions to customers. Custom Wiring has been a regional cable assembly company since 1978.  Rob Coats, a Lexington entrepreneur, who sold SMC in 2007, purchased Custom Wiring in May of 2011. He then added EMS and Systems Integration capabilities so the new SMC will have all three options for customers.

Joining Mr. Coats in this venture are thirteen of the key people that made SMC a success the first time.  By recruiting the “right” employees; choosing the best equipment; installing all of the necessary engineering services; and utilizing our business principles, SMC is quickly becoming a thriving corporation.
