The Compagnie des forges et aciéries de la marine et d’Homécourt (FAMH) (Company of marine forges and steelworks and of Homécourt) was a French industrial enterprise that made iron and steel products for the French navy, army and railroads.

It is often known as Saint-Chamond from its main location in Saint-Chamond, Loire.

During World War I (1914-1918) the company built several different types of weapons, notably the Saint Chamond-Mondragón 75 mm gun which had been designed mostly by colonel Rimailho, the Saint-Chamond tank and the deficient Chauchat machine rifle.

They also produced naval guns, such as the quadruple gun turret design for the unfinished Normandie-class battleships.
