Somta Tools was founded in 1954 by Samuel Osborn Ltd of Sheffield, England, through its subsidiaries Osborn Steels and Osborn Mushet Tools. The name Somta was chosen as the acronym for these companies operating in South Africa.

Somta continues to operate from its original site on Moses Mabhida Road (formerly Edendale Road) in Pietermaritzburg. Somta's expansion has been brought about by the acquisition of two cutting tool companies during the 1980's. Additional growth is realised by continual investment in new plant, with emphasis on state of the art CNC equipment such as Junker, Normac, Rollomatic, Walter, Reinecker and Reishauer machines.
