Since 1950 ...

SOMP was founded in 1950 for the electrolytic refining of precious and non-ferrous metals such as gold, silver and copper cathodes.

The refined metals were subsequently exported at over 999/1000.

In 1955, SOMP minted for the Lebanese Finance Ministry 5 piastres out of a magnesium / aluminum alloy and 10 piastres out of a 92/8 copper aluminum (Aluminum bronze) alloy.

In the early 60's due to the lack of reputable, precision industrial repair shops, SOMP decided to take the leadership role of becoming a reliable, quality-oriented, state of the art Lebanese workshop to service the Lebanese and Middle Eastern industries. It became a close partner of many industrial clients.

With a systematic, and steady modernization program, SOMP was able to realize its objective: Producing any spare part for any application ON SHORT NOTICE and thus minimizing downtime for its industial partners.

SOMP has an induction furnace foundry equipped with a spectrometer laboratory and a workshop well equipped even with Hobbing machines that can cut gears from 25mm till 1,950mm diameter.

SOMP is equipped for Heat Treatment hardening; tempering; normalizing; annealing etc...

SOMP also does balancing till 6,000Kg weight and with another equipment balance the exhaust diesels air feeding turbines and turbo chargers.
