In early 2004, SMETCO completed expansion of its primary facility to consolidate all manufacturing, design, operations, and worldwide sales headquarters into one state-of-the-art site.  The expanded main facility is conveniently located in the historic community of Aurora, Oregon approximately 25 miles south of downtown Portland along the Interstate 5 corridor.  Founded in 1856, the arts community of Aurora has stayed virtually the same size today.  Aurora's thriving historic district consists of sixteen antique shops and the five-building Old Aurora Colony Museum Complex.
