Sale to private individuals and professionals

The director, Denis Baillet, started his business in 1978; he founded the company in 1994, notably after buying a dozen workshops which were closing following retirements. Initially devoted to making wooden pegs, toys, wheels, balls and bars and knobs, the director has been actively developing the range of articles since 2003 to include high-end wood-turning (lights and table items).

The workshop implements several operations: developing the manufacturing process (defining mounts and calibres to hold parts), adjusting machines and sharpening tools, supervising work. Development and adjustment are complex operations requiring skill and experience. The association of the three areas of expertise – turning, bar-turning and ornamental turning – is becoming more and more rare and implies a multitude of tricks and secrets to achieve a quality product. The company uses local woods (beech, linden, hornbeam, ash and fir).

The clientele is made entirely of companies specialised in selling wooden products: hardware wholesalers, purchasing platforms and wholesalers and particularly object editors.
