Bussière-Galant, a small town in the Haute-Vienne, has been famous for its chestnut tree since the early 20th century. At the time, however, it was a matter of converting it into coal. In fact, there was the black quarter. The station allowed to transport the materials easily. Subsequently, the qualities of chestnut wood were discovered.

Chestnut is a wood that splits well!

The company has existed since the beginning of the 20th century, when the first orders consisted of making straps, chestnut poles and trellises for Breton and Scottish sponsors. Chestnut wood made it possible to make casks of whisky and cognac as well as wine stands.

In 1968, René Faure took over the business from his original creator, Mr. Bonhomme.

Since 1968, the company has been a family business. If the modes of transport have evolved well: the semi-trailers have replaced the trains of the Bussière station. Construction machinery and the workshop were gradually mechanized.

However, the work and finishes are still done by hand, guaranteeing quality chestnut products.

Grégory Faure represents the 3rd generation at the head of the company.
