“So.Ca.Ge” - Società di Carpenteria Generale – was established in 1974 as a specialist manufacturer of metallic components. In 1981 the company turned its engineering expertise to the production of vehicle-mounted access platforms. Thanks to its innovative articulated platforms, Socage became a leader in the Italian market.
Today it produces a popular range of booms, including the A314 pick-up mounted boom. Designed for tree work and utilities contractors, all cables are housed inside the boom sections, protecting them from damage due to contact with tree branches, walls, or fences.
Socage’s E-Series of booms provide up to 28m working height from a 3.5t Nissan Cabstar, meaning the vehicle can be driven by anyone with a standard UK driving licence.
Socage prides itself on innovation. Its unique partnership with Welser Profile GmbH resulted in the use of new laser welding techniques on high strength steel. This enabled Socage to decrease the total weight of its booms without compromising on stability and durability.
As the UK distributor, we hold a substantial Socage parts inventory, with most items available for next day delivery on orders placed before 4pm. Our experienced technicians are also on hand to provide any warranty work, as well as routine inspection, maintenance and repair of all Socage products.
