Inventions and innovation


Since the organization's activity of trading in industrial diamonds has been long-standing, the company benefits from a rapid innovation of the tools used in mining them.

For this reason, the organization focuses on the development of tools that would contain the (hitherto known) hardest natural substance.

Since 1934, JK Smit has been working with a bunch of brilliant minds from the tools and mining industry, making rapid progress in the development of diamond tools in the years that followed.
