A UNIQUE MODEL ...

Our innovative concept is the result of the partnership between the artisanal cooperative company SOCAPS S.A. and the network of regional sales agencies united within SOCAPS GROUP.

In Europe, our technical staff – known as “Members” – are both artisan technicians working on customer sites and shareholders of SOCAPS S.A.

In the rest of the world, our members are independent workers who adhere to the principles and values of SOCAPS as a cooperative company and participate in the deployment of our international network.

The cooperative model allows people to be placed at the heart of our strategic thinking and our model of democratic governance. It also allows great agility in a constantly changing world while preserving our local anchoring.

... A COLLABORATIVE GOVERNANCE

The governance of the SOCAPS S.A. cooperative is ensured by a Board of Directors made up of artisans elected from among their peers. Our cooperative also relies on regional commercial agencies, grouped together within SOCAPS GROUP, a commercial company managed by an Executive Committee.

Ethical principles and a code of conduct are at the heart of our governance and our business model, throughout the world.

For this reason, SOCAPS is a signatory of the “United Nations Global Compact” to affirm its determination to maintain a culture of integrity through the implementation of the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact through global operations.

A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT

As a cooperative, we place People at the heart of our business model and our daily principles.

Concretely, this translates into an absolute priority given to health and safety at work for our employees, members and service providers, everywhere and at all times.

This is also reflected in each action taken for our customers by our members or employees with a strong requirement of mutual respect.

Finally, we have a duty of transparency and moral rigor in the decisions that we take on a daily basis and that we apply to ourselves.

Joint Management Commitment

OUR VALUES

SOCAPS STATE OF MIND

Let’s think about SOCAPS operations through the “3P” mentality to create a virtuous circle of “People – Profit – Planet”.

At SOCAPS, we believe that by investing in our teams (People), we achieve our financial targets (Profit) allowing us to act virtuously towards our communities (Planet) … Therefore, attracting more talents, customers & partners who share this vision… and so on.

It is a virtuous circle which allows us to think differently about the strategic issue of benevolence and places Corporate Social Responsibility at the heart of the company’s Vision. It is in this sense that we reconcile Man & Capital, Production & Environment.

This philosophy is now embodied in our Mission, the association of our Purpose and the 3 impact goals (one for each “P”) that we have decided to assign ourselves.

Since we decided to take this position publicly to increase our impact (we call it Corporate activism) we have transcribed our Purpose in our articles of incorporation : “SOCAPS supports the growth of worldwide industrial operators through innovative phygital solutions, delivered by teams of experts committed to a responsible and sustainable industry”.  therefore becoming a Mission Driven Cooperative Company.
