SOCOTEC, a trusted and successful international group

In 2022, the Group consolidated its positions in its key markets and on major projects in the Building, Infrastructure and Industry sectors, thereby reaffirming SOCOTEC’s aim of becoming the world leader in asset integrity.

With €1.2bn turnover and 11.300 technicians and engineers worldwide, SOCOTEC is a recognized specialized trusted third-party.

Our services are essential  to accompany the environmental, energy and regulatory transitions, throughout the lifecycle of the construction, infrastructure, and industrial assets to guarantee their integrity and ensure the safety of people living or working in buildings as well as of people using infrastructure or industry equipments daily .

The increasing need for performance issues relating to assets in the perspective of sustainability, resilience, urbanisation, climate change, technical and environmental performance, etc… has allowed us to become a natural partner and trusted third-party among our clients around the world.

Our aim is to continue building confidence among all our stakeholders – our clients, public and private companies as well as with our teams – to ensure that testing, inspection and certification are understood as a way of bringing a safer and sustainable world to people.
