About Socomec

Founded in 1922 by engineer Joseph Siat, Socomec was established in Benfield under the name of Société des Ateliers de Constructions Électromécaniques du Bas-Rhin (lower Electro -Mechanical Manufacturing company). The company worked on producing and selling switches, fuse links, fuses, bells, and rotisseries.

The company switched its focus to more specific equipment early on in the business: changeover switches, transformer, rheostat-regulators and high breaking capacity fuse links. Naming changed in 1953 to what we know today as Socomec.
