Innovation from tradition

Master mechanical engineer Frank Schulzig took over the mechanical engineering company Heinrich Soost in late 2007, and the company was rebranded SOMACON Maschinenbau GmbH in 2010.

Our goal is to continue the traditional values of the company and to develop them further with innovative production technologies.

Learning every day and developing further all the time are the guiding principles behind everything we do.
We are currently training young apprentices in the field of precision machining, allowing us to retain and pass on our expertise.


Company history


When it was founded by Heinrich Soost in 1949, the company was a metalworking shop and a workshop for agricultural machinery.

The company moved to its current location in 1983, following the erection of new production facilities at the site. Little by little, the company was restructured to focus on special engineering, delivering machinery and systems throughout Germany, Europe and even overseas. In 1994, the company was taken over by Bernd-Heinrich Soost, who continued its great success into the third generation.


Master mechanical engineer Frank Schulzig from Bromskirchen took over the renowned family company in late 2007.

Since 2010, the company has operated under the new name, SOMACON Maschinenbau GmbH.
