It began in the golden fifties
Mr J. Smits Senior was the founder of the company in the year 1951 and dedicated his life to the company. In the year 1974 he had to retire due to an increasing eye disease, which made him almost completely blind. He carried the company over to two of his sons Paul Smits and Hans Smits, who continued to enlarge the company to a world-wide operating casing trade organization.
In the year 2000 the company SMITS I.T.C. joined the group of companies of Peter Gelhard Naturdärme, Germany.
After this there is a close cooperation between SMITS I.T.C. and Peter Gelhard Naturdärme for the supply of natural casings.
