Since 1960, the company has been developing glass prototypes for scientific or artistic use. It is also specialised in designing educational and industrial installations for the chemical industry.

Eight "Meilleurs Ouvriers de France” have built the reputation of Pignat since the beginning. Currently two of these experts are still with the company. It is the only company in France able to offer very large items thanks to a tower it designed itself.

In most of the installations it makes, the company uses its own glass-blowing technique. Installations made for the chemical industry notably allow for the development of innovative processes. The purpose of the educational installations is to teach in a practical manner the main operations of process engineering.

With over 50 years' experience, the company works for chemical companies and for luxury companies and generates 35% of its income from exporting to over 60 countries (America, Asia, Middle East and the Maghreb).
