Ammonites of Madagascar are recognized among the best in the world, in which SEAM has made its notoriety. SEAM exported its products around the world such as the USA, Europe, Asia and participates in different shows around the globe, especially in Europe and the USA.

The appellation is now SEAM EUROPE SARL.
