SCORDIA is located in Saint Amour, near Moirans en Montagne, capital of wooden toys and turnery and near Saint-Claude, previously the capital of wooden religious objects.

The profession of turning is deeply rooted in the area. Tournerie SCORDIA is specialised in restoring old objects and furniture for antiquaries or collectors. It also makes objects such as pepper shakers from boxwood root as well as secret-keeping boxes.  The company mainly practises traditional turnery, notably for furniture manufacturers (table legs, etc.). Mr SCORDIA carries out every step of design and manufacturing alone, from drawing plans and sketches through to selling the product. The company works with specific materials like boxwood root, precious woods, horn and tortoiseshell. Mr SCORDIA was nominated a "Meilleur Ouvrier de France” [Best Craftsman in France] in 1986.
