INNOVATION, DISCIPLINE, SERVICE
These are the values on which SOMEFOR Ressources was founded and which have been the key to its success.
The origins of SOMEFOR (Société Méridionale de Formulation) can be traced back to the 19th century when the 'société des Blancs de Zinc de la Méditerranée' was established in 1893. This family business specialised in the production of zinc oxide and 'ground white,' which served as a precursor to paint.
In 1990, Somefor emerged as a separate entity from this structure and steadily expanded its presence in both professional and consumer markets, both in France and internationally.
Simultaneously, a department within the organisation focused on packaging and selling mineral and organic pigments for various industrial applications. This division experienced significant growth and eventually transformed into an independent entity in 2013, known today as Somefor Ressources
