Our distributor in Italy, Socrate, believes the close collaboration between our companies ensures tailored solutions that meet the needs in the oil-, gas-, and petrochemical industry in Southern Europe and Northern parts of Africa.


CEO at Socrate Nicola Sorrentino

Socrate has more than three decades of experience delivering high-quality cutting-edge innovation to industries requiring a complete set of solutions. This for analytical process application needs on different types of systems such as natural gas flow and quality metering stations, sulphur recovery systems, desulphurization systems, petrol and diesel blending, oven combustion control and solutions for refining plants. It has in later years also developed specialized skills within fire and gas detection and extinguisher systems.

– Today Socrate meets Italian, Croatian, Libyan and Tunisian market needs with solutions both in the process analysis and the metering sectors as well as that of fire and gas detection and extinguisher systems, says CEO Nicola Sorrentino.

– Only a high quality instrument or system provides the customer with an adequate return on investment and, in fact, although sometimes it may seem economically more challenging, shows in time to be the bearer of unquestionable added value. Installments on a system require a proper start-up and proper maintenance over time. This is why our service staff engineers are constantly undergoing refresher courses on products and our solutions, and why the close dialogue we have with suppliers such as NEO Monitors is so important, says Sorrentino.
