The companies have very complementary businesses in terms of product ranges, product approvals and territories.  Both are mainly dedicated to aerospace surface preparation.

This merger brings together the opportunity for both companies to answer their customer's international expectations, with a consolidation of suppliers dedicated to aerospace-approved chemical products. "This is critical for us and our goal is to grow into a manufacturing and innovative "medium-sized business" reminds Frédéric Lescure, Socomore's CEO.

As a sign of industry acknowledgement, the aerospace-dedicated investment fund Aerofund II, managed by ACE Management and sponsored by main prime contractors such as Airbus and Safran, has recently invested into Socomore’s capital to support this operation, and then becomes one of the equity partners, alongside CM-CIC Capital Finance and Audacia, of the controlling shareholder Frédéric Lescure.
