Manufacturing collaboration In Brazil

In 2010 Socomore entered the Brazilian aerospace market where leading aircraft manufacturer Embraer, together with its significant local supply chain, is based. An agreement was made with Brazil based fellow Aerochemicals member Metal Chek to provide commercial agency, offices and production capacity to manufacture and market Socomore’s products in Brazil. This offered Socomore a simple way to enter the Brazilian market, which can be complex for a European company. Socomore provided full technical support for the qualification and use of the products in the Brazilian industry. This collaboration has enabled Socomore to get a stronger foothold in Brazil, in both the aerospace and automotive markets. This successful partnership has developed an excellent reputation and enhanced sales of its products. 5 years after the 1st milestone, Socomore is now considering opening its own sales office in the country.

Supply chain collaboration In India

Pexa Ltd, Socomore and Sherwin Inc. work together closely to develop synergies which benefit their customers. In May 2015, they decided to join forces to invest in developing a leading position in the rapidly expanding Indian market. Pexa, as a specialist distributor of surface treatments and coatings, with an extensive experience of supply chain management in the aerospace industry, will distribute Socomore surface treatment products and Sherwin NDT products. This new partnership will involve Pexa taking the lead in India, entering into agreements with customers and suppliers, employing local staff and developing local facilities. Socomore and Sherwin will support the investments and provide their technologies and technical support via the new venture. The companies will build on their existing successful business partnerships with Indian customers and plan to locate their new operation in the Bangalore area.
