Founded in 1987, the company has been based in Lanvallay, near Dinan (22), and specialises in the restoration and reproduction of locksmith's items (bolts, latches, locks, hinges, keys, knockers, etc).

It also offers customers complementary services restoring metal art objects (bronze, white metal), particularly old chandeliers and lamps, as well as creating pieces in cast iron on occasion.

One of the only ironmongers specialising in locking mechanisms, this company is guardian of an undisputed know-how of the traditional locksmith's trade. It handles every operation: design, forging, hammering, filing, assembly, welding, adjustment, decoration - if required, laser cutting, milling and turning.

For 25 years, the company director, formerly a naval mechanic, has been working to order for cabinet-makers and antique dealers, museums, the Mobilier National, Monuments Historiques and Bâtiments de France, and for private collectors and lovers of art objects. The company exhibits at the Cultural Heritage Exhibition at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris every year.

The company operates nationwide and has some projects internationally, particularly in Switzerland.
