Family heritage spanning three generations
Our commitment to making durable products with flawless quality is rooted in a family history spanning three generations of entrepreneurs.
In 1947, Henri Bourgeaux, Matthieu Bourgeaux’s grandfather, started a small company specializing in metal work in the Alps mountain region near Chamonix in France. Over the years, the Bourgeaux factory has specialized in a metal working technique called “bar turning” consisting in processing metal bars into precision components.
Taking over from the founding grandfather, the Bourgeaux factory was later managed by Matthieu’s father and uncle and more recently by his older brother. Since 2015, the family factory has been one of TIPTOE’s main partners with the manufacturing of thousands of mechanical pieces each year.
