In a world filled with choices, how can you be confident that Ed W. Smith is the way to go? Here at Ed W. Smith, we are committed to putting our customers first. Above all, we treat our customers how we would want to be treated. So, contact us today.

You can also be confident in the quality of our deliverable. We also exclusively use American made materials to ensure the durability of our units. Even more, we opt for 316 stainless steel over 304 stainless steel to prevent corrosion. Additionally, we provide clients with a drop-in ready unit. Unlike other companies that provide bound vanes and ask that the client provide the housing, we fabricate a robust carbon steel housing enclosing our vane packs to increase longevity and reduce the amount of work required of the customer.



Since our conception, we have conducted business in accordance with our four core values: Customer Support, Collaboration, Innovation, & Accountability.

Moreover, we strive to put the customer first in everything we do by being transparent in our correspondence and mindful of improving the clients’value proposition. Furthermore, we welcome our customers’ comments and feedback. We aim to integrate our customers into our project team in order to provide them with the most financially and technically valuable deliverable.
