Building the best machines together.

Successful with high-tech industrial solutions

From Schalksmühle to the world: At SOMA we successfully construct individual high-tech industrial solutions for the productions of our international customers. We independently develop complete system solutions and are always available to our customers as a competent contact partner throughout the entire project. We take mechanical engineering to new levels of precision and set the beat. And this in direct interaction between our three business divisions:

  • Test Technology & Automation
    We are an international system supplier for testing and automation technology in plant engineering.

  • Dosing Technology
    We are a manufacturer of innovative and patented dosing technology for industrial lubricants.

  • Worker Assistance
    We digitise manual production: With our flexAssistant as a smart software solution for workers.

Technology is our beat

It's our heart. We work in teams, using intuition to solve our solutions and our customers' challenges. Sharing ideas and knowledge across business units brings us closer together and helps everyone grow.

Exciting projects, cool technology

At SOMA, versatile, challenging projects are in the pipeline. We are looking for reinforcements to set the beat with us: Direct cobots and hovering workpiece carriers, create the next generation of vision systems. High voltage: Control high currents, connect high voltages with complex measurement technology. Straight forward: Develop individual software applications with the newest tools. As part of the SOMA team, you bring unique high-end systems to life and show our customers what technology can rock.

Top colleagues, strong know-how

Our decision-making channels are short, and good ideas meet with open ears. We have the necessary space for experimentation and further development. Our cooperation and daily work are characterised by collegiality and curiosity. We provide each other with impulses: interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge across the individual teams and fringes, training and opportunities for further development secure our expert knowledge. We deal honestly, openly and appreciatively with each other and the daily challenges.


Situated on the edge of the Sauerland region, Schalksmühle offers an attractive living environment with plenty of shopping facilities, a wide range of restaurants, and easily accessible kindergartens and schools. Housing here is affordable and, most importantly, available. If you want to be active in your free time, there are plenty of options: Hiking around the dams, leisurely cycling along the Volme or downhill biking in the Sauerland Bike Arena, climbing on the Lenne or in the Altena indoor climbing centre, swimming, canoeing and much more. Thanks to the many local sports clubs, it is easy to make new friends in Schalksmühle and to enjoy your favourite activities with them.
