Midland, VA – January 15, 2015 – Smith-Midland Corporation (OTCQB: SMID) –
Entering its 55th year in business, the Smith-Midland Corporation celebrates its growth and product line expansion with the launch of a video marketing campaign. In an effort to heighten global awareness of its ongoing corporate innovation, high-quality service offerings and various product lines, this week Smith-Midland launched the first of a series of videos giving an inside look at the company.
This first video was produced for the purposes of introducing Smith-Midland’s achievements in innovation, strong corporate culture and expanding product offerings, and may be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1FdvRKQGeo. Additional videos are planned and will highlight each product line and marketplace in detail, including Easi-Set Buildings™, Slender Wall Cladding ™, JJ Hooks™, Soft Sound™ and Beach Prisms™.
“Smith-Midland, first and foremost is a manufacturer,” said Ashley Smith, President and Chief Operating Officer of Smith-Midland. “That is what we do, day in and day out – we produce precast concrete products. But, what we really are is a corporate culture where people are developed.” The video summarizes the company’s beginnings from the original design of “a better way to make” a cattle guard by Smith-Midland founder, David Smith in 1960. His grandson, Mr. Ashley Smith, recognizes the importance of every team member’s efforts, ideas and leadership, in honor of his grandfather’s sense of innovation.
“It is in the DNA of the company to improve and dream up better ways to do things,” said Rodney Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Smith-Midland. “We have fifty-four successful years in business offering new, creative pre-cast concrete products that otherwise, did not exist before. We’ve brought them to the marketplace, across seven countries and 40 states, and there remains no other business model like ours– we’ve invented the whole idea of licensing to build a pre-cast concrete product.”
The video celebrates Smith-Midland’s corporate milestones and innovative contributions to projects such as Johns Hopkins Medicine Baltimore Campus, the Westin Hotel in Virginia Beach and Bio Innovation Center in New Orleans through its Slender Wall Cladding™; its Beach Prisms™ product in Ingram Bay, Virginia; and work with the Tysons Tower in McLean, Virginia; the Jefferson at Ingo’s Crossing in Washington, D.C.; and the National Zoo.
Future videos will be uploaded to You Tube when completed.
