Management

Group Somika has strong presence in the domestic market and expertise in sourcing and marketing whereas Steelmakers based primarily in Kenya and other African countries has a strong expertise in steel production of international standards. In the year 2005, Somika Group and Steelmakers came together to form a company that would gear the economics of infrastructure development in DRC - and thus Sotrafer was formed. The pioneering spirit in both the companies’ lives on today.

Sotrafer began its operations in the year 2005 with the passion for excellence under the administration of Mr. Chetan V. Chug and Mr. Kalpesh Patel. They saw the scope of steel manufacturing with limitless possibilities for the future. They were prepared to meet the differed and energizing challenges ahead.

Primary goal was to stop export of Steel Scrap from DRC and reduce importation of Steel products, improving local infrastructure to support DRC economy and to create local employment – thus saving on Foreign exchange for purchase of steel and converting scrap / waste to usable product.
