Customised solutions for your kaolin
and specialty mineral requirements

SOKA: international kaolin and mineral filler specialist

Founded in 1951, SOKA is specialised in the extraction, processing and calcination of raw kaolin, refined kaolin and calcined kaolin in France and Ukraine.
The Company has two production sites: the head office in Brittany, France, including three kaolin deposits, a refining factory and a calcination plant. In Ukraine, SOKA has been operating two kaolin deposits and a refining plant in Kazatin (Ukraine) since 2015. A high percentage of SOKA's turnover is generated through international export by means of high-performing logistics. 

A wet process is used to concentrate products into complex silicates in the processing plants at Quessoy (France) and Kazatin (Ukraine). SOKA kaolins are of constant analytical composition and may be used for a range of industrial applications, such as ceramics and mineral fillers. In 2016 SOKA added a new calcination plant to the French site, in line with its functional mineral filler development strategy. SOKA has been a FAMI-QS animal feed certification holder since 2006.
