Houston, TX (December 5, 2019) – Smith, a global distributor of electronic components and semiconductors, today announces the relocation of its Shanghai office. The office’s new location positions Smith in the heart of Shanghai’s central business district – the world’s most populous urban area and a global hub for transportation, finance, and innovation.
