The Rivierre company, founded in 1888, specialises in the manufacture of forged nails. It is the last company to produce forged tacks in France.


The company produce tacks for carpet manufacturers and shoemakers, forged nails for shipyards and custom-made tacks.

The company has in total 325 machines which it manufactured between 1895 and 1930, enabling small runs of custom-made tacks to be carried out.

The manufacturing processes have remained unchanged since the machines were commissioned. Rivierre employs a cold forging method combined with a continuous forging process  and it supplies professionals in the carpet and shipbuilding industries and those working on the restoration of old furniture.

The company sells its products in small amounts over the internet. A great many of the products are distributed through wholesalers.
