Taken over in 1982, the company is located in Saint-Bonnet-de-Joux. For 8 generations, this family of iron workers has passed on tools and know-how

The company’s main activity is the production and restoration of forged iron works (fences, gates, stairways, porches, railings, etc.). The company has also developed an activity making furniture, lights and decorative items. It commands all traditional ironwork processes, in particular forging, and also directly moulding lead sealings and ornaments onto railings. It has a large collection of moulds passed down by the previous generations.
