Created in 1922, SOCOMEC is an industrial group with a workforce of 2,900 people.
Our vocation: the control and protection of your low voltage electrical networks. Our independence allows us to have long-term vision and complete control of any decisions affecting our development.


With a strong international presence, including bases in more than 70 countries, 25 of which are subsidiaries, the SOCOMEC group is a major player in the global low voltage power distribution market.


Built on two European centres of excellence (France and Italy), the Group benefits from competitive production sites (Tunisia) and those located in the major emerging markets (India and China). A new European distribution centre, located in France, is indicative of our determination to control its logistics chain so as to enable responding to reduced lead-times.


By reinvesting more than 10 % of its sales in R&D, SOCOMEC is providing the means behind its ambition: to always be at the cutting-edge of technology. This drive to be innovative has nothing to do with luck. It impacts on the company’s continuing profitability and its ability to stand apart from other market players, as well as meeting our customers’ expectations and constraints.


As part of its determination to have lasting and stable development the SOCOMEC Group subscribes to the “Global Compact”, the UN international agreement that covers the social and environmental impacts of globalisation.

As firm believers in corporate social responsibility we are determined to maintain jobs in our historic European production sites.

As job-creators in emerging countries we are actively contributing to our social and economic development in full respect of human and labour rights and the environment.
