Founded in 1955 by Basile Lachaud in Pompadour in Corrèze, SICAME developed in France than abroad. The Group grew fast internally and through acquisitions thanks to the constant development of electrical infrastructures in France and for export. Today, the Group’s products can be found on all five continents. SICAME Group is currently the largest independent entity in its sector of activity. For many years, SICAME Group has clearly committed itself to social and humanitarian actions in complete alignment with its values and its mission.
Because, for us, social work helps strengthen the determination to become part of a background of solidarity and is part of a responsible approach for the common good. In June 2016, the Group reached a new milestone with the creating of its Foundation. Our foundation strives to continue the actions that are already in place such as support for the “electricians without borders” association, of which the vocation is to facilitate access to electricity in developing countries or the Foundation for Medical Research, a scientific body conducting medical research on serious pathologies such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases, or neglected diseases.
The foundation also finances the integration of persons with disabilities through education, coaching and personal development, including for example therapies with horses.
