Smetana and Associates was established over 42 years ago as an underground contractor
for telephone companies. However, today Smetana builds and maintains distribution
systems for all underground utilities. We are currently certified by the State of
Texas as a Historically Underutilized Business (HUB). In addition, 75% of our employees
Smetana operates in accordance with the highest standards in all relationships with
customers, suppliers, environment and the community. We strive to foster a climate,
which encourages innovation and diligence amongst the employees and staff.
In 1984, Smetana implemented a retirement benefit plan known as an Employee Stock
Ownership Plan, or ESOP. Under this plan, employees - now known as Employee Owners
- can accumulate company stock as they become eligible. All Smetana Employees have
a stake in the continual improvement and success of the company.
We support any endeavor that promotes the utilization of women, minority and small
business. We ourselves meet these qualifications and would support any commitment
by our clients for supplier diversification.
