SOCOMORE Ltda. Press Release

Published on 08 July 2016

SOCOMORE and METAL-CHEK Establish A Joint Venture in Brazil

SOCOMORE, a world player in surface preparation, treatment and protection, and METAL-CHEK, a leader in non-destructive testing in South America, have formed a multi-year partnership through the creation of a joint-venture (J.V.) for the manufacturing and commercialization of aerospace & automotive products.


The new company SOCOMORE Ltda, owned 60% by SOCOMORE and 40% by METAL-CHEK, is based right beside METAL-CHEK plant in Bragança Paulista (80 km from São Paulo), Brazil. The J.V. was created following a partnership of more than 5 years through a trade and industrial cooperation agreement. Each company brings its own expertise to develop sales in Brazil with local customers and/or US / European companies’ subsidiaries. 


Creating SOCOMORE Ltda reflects SOCOMORE Group’s desire to be permanently present in Brazil and South America. This allows the Group to be closer to its customers and possibly adapt its products to meet their specific needs.


For now, the J. V. has 3 employees:

  • a market manager in charge of Business Development in the Aerospace and Automotive
  • an operational manager who manages the back office, supply chain, and manages information systems
  • an R&D Project Manager


They can rely on the METAL-CHEK sales network, 6 business people who already know Socomore’s products, who will work together to promote, qualify, and sell some of Socomore’s aerospace and automotive product ranges:

  • Solvent liquids or pre-saturated wipes
  • Aircraft paint strippers
  • Water-based lubricants for cars
  • Deoxidizers and descalers for engine parts
  • Aqueous degreasers for preparing surfaces before various operations (bonding, painting, etc.)


Created in March 2016, the Joint Venture SOCOMORE Ltda is operational since July 1st, 2016. For customers who order SOCOMORE products, the only change is the name of company that operates the commercial management and logistics. Trade details remain the same.
