SMP was founded in November 2011 by Robert Abrams to develop and commercialize medical products that incorporate thin, transparent coatings or treatments on the drug contact surfaces. Utilizing the well-known process of Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD), the SMP team developed proprietary PECVD processes to coat or treat a range of medical devices to provide gas barrier properties that approach glass and low protein binding surfaces.
SMP's technology was developed with the assistance of a world-class Scientific Advisory Board headed by Dr. Robert Pangborn, member of the SMP Board of Directors and former Senior Vice President for the Dow Chemical Company. Many of the Scientific Advisory Board members have been with Mr. Abrams' companies for over 19 years.
SMP is headquartered in Auburn, Alabama, with Sales, Marketing, Legal, and Project Management capabilities based out of offices near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The company has a state-of-the-art, 160,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant, in addition to the corporate headquarters, in Auburn, Alabama.
