In 2017, Sylvain and Rémi Ferrandez stepped into the shoes of their father, Jo, the visionary founder of SOCMA. He passed on to them not only a passion for wine but also an innate knack for innovation—two cornerstones that have bolstered SOCMA’s success since 1987.
By consistently meeting the needs of vineyards, big and small, both locally and internationally, SOCMA has made itself a distinguished place in the industrial sphere of the wine sector.
With a team of 25 skilled experts and a tradition that stretches over three decades, all equipment manufacturing has loyally stayed within the Narbonne area, specifically in Montredon-des-Corbières.
Upholding the values instilled by their father, the succeeding generation proudly perpetuates this family spirit of groundedness.
