CEO

Founded in 1962 by Remi Pelgrims, Somati started with the sales of fire extinguishers in Brussels.  The offer quickly extended to extinguishing systems, compartmentation and smoke detection, which urged a move to a bigger location in Aalst.

In 1980 Somati started building fire engines for Belgian fire brigades and army.  Soon, crashtenders for international airports were added to the portfolio.  A separate entity, first named Somati Equipment, was founded in 1990 to further extend the vehicles department. Later the name changed to Somati Vehicles and the portfolio was extended with medical, utility and police vehicles.

Today Somati Vehicles nv is an independent, privately owned company.
