Following a year of planning, Scientific Management International finally launched into the Australian market during the Pacific 17 Exhibition in Sydney. We were delighted to showcase our industry leading connectors and cable harnesses and received a very positive response from the attendees.

Worldwide CEO Keith Wells joined the Australian team at the event led by Jo Naquesage, Director & General Manager of the Australian branch, and Mike Jones, Director of Sales.

Scientific Management International are proud to be the ONLY company in the world with an unbroken record of 20 years MoD Capability Approval Certification for through-hull penetrator supply to the UK’s nuclear submarine fleet, reinforcing the company mantra of “fit and forget” for the world’s most hostile environment cable harnesses and connector installations.

Supplying subsea and surface hostile environment cable harness and connector installations for over 25 years, Scientific Management International have built a deserved reputation of “right first time, fit and forget” across more than 10,000 installations worldwide.

Now, with supply across Marine – sea and subsea, Aerospace, Energy – tidal, wind, hydro and nuclear, plus Transport – road and rail including eMobility, Scientific Management International really do have most hostile environment bases covered.

To further build international partnerships for our business, we are proud to have sales facilities in Paris, France, Perth, Western Australia and Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada in addition to our Head Office in Andover, United Kingdom.

Scientific Management International Represented in The Parliamentary Review

Scientific Management International are delighted to announce that they have been featured in The Parliamentary Review. The annual publication is a guide to industry best practice which demonstrates how sector leaders have responded to challenges in the political and economic environment. The review also includes sector specific insight from the Prime Minister, Secretaries of State and MPs. Scientific Management International Featured in The Parliamentary Review

As proud representatives of the Defence industry, the inclusion of Scientific Management International is particularly pertinent as we celebrate 20 years of uninterrupted Capability Approval from the MoD for our through hull penetrator Pressure Hull Glands – a world first.

Capability Approval is only awarded to companies that have put their products under a rigorous series of tests to ascertain their capability to deliver to stringent defence standards. These must be repeated on a 3 yearly basis, and Scientific Management International’s record is unparalleled.

Only a handful of companies each year are chosen to be included, and our CEO Keith Wells spoke of his pride at being asked to participate “This year has been an exceptional one for us as not only are we celebrating 20 years of uninterrupted Capability Approval and 25 years in business, we’ve also seen continued expansion across the globe – now having offices in Australia, Canada & France as well as our manufacturing headquarters in the UK. To be invited to be in such illustrious company in the Parliamentary Review is a fitting end to a phenomenal year and a testament to our continued excellence in our field”.
