Founded in 1922, Socomec is an industrial group with a workforce of 3600 people. Our core business – the availability, control and safety of low voltage electrical networks with increased focus on our customers’ power performance. In 2020, SOCOMEC achieved a turnover of 604 million euros.
The culture of independence
The Socomec Group’s independence ensures control over its own decision making, respecting the values advocated by its own family shareholders and shared by its employees. With around 30 subsidiaries located on all five continents, Socomec pursues international development by targeting industrial and service applications where the quality of its expertise makes all the difference.
As undisputed specialists in UPS systems, mains supply changeover, power conversion and measurement, Socomec dedicates nearly 8% of its turnover to R&D. As a result the Group can achieve its ambition of always being one technological step ahead.
As a manufacturer with complete control over its technological processes, Socomec is quite unlike the more general providers. The Group is constantly improving its fields of expertise in order to offer its clients increasingly customised, appropriate solutions.
A flexible manufacturing structure
Backed by two European centres of excellence (France and Italy), the Group also benefits from competitive production sites such as Tunisia and locations in the major emerging markets (India and China). These sites have all implemented a system of continuous improvement based on Lean Management principles, and are therefore in a position to provide high levels of quality, and meet the deadlines and cost requirements expected by customers.
Our manufacturer’s expertise naturally extends to a complete range of services designed to facilitate the research, implementation and operation of our solutions. Our service teams have built their reputation on reassuring guidance, flexible skills and reactivity.
As a Group which is open to all cultures and firmly committed to human values, Socomec promotes employee initiative and commitment. Working relationships are based on the idea of partnerships and respect for shared ethics. Through the company’s commitment to achieving harmonious, lasting development, Socomec fully embraces its responsibilities not only towards its shareholders, employees, customers and partners, but also towards society as a whole and its environment. Socomec has been a signatory to the Global Compact since 2003.
