Greenfield Investments

About Greenfield Investments

The term greenfield investment comes from business parlance and describes the construction or expansion of businesses with a focus on production. When planning and building a modern smart factory, automation is just as much a part of it as the construction of systems for liquids, gases, instrumentation and temperature control. As the world market leader for automation with more than 20,000 employees worldwide, SMC is a strong partner for your large and small projects.
