Local expertise delivered globally

Founded in 1971 in Newcastle upon Tyne, Soil Machine Dynamics Ltd (SMD) began as a small family-owned business and over the last 46 years has grown to be one of the largest subsea manufacturers in the world. Our two production facilities in Wallsend and North Shields are home to expert engineering and production teams with a fully fitted workshop housing the facilities to design and manufacture all of our products in house. In 2015 SMD were acquired by CRRC Times Electric Corporation and we have since opened a 7200m² facility in the heart of Shanghai offering both expert engineering and production staff, and bringing additional focus to the region as we continue our expansion.
