Company

une large gamme de céramiquesWe need to return to the mid-nineteenth century to find the origins of the company that has become Céramiques de France today. The Foubert family started its activity in 1856 and has survived centuries, crises, wars and even two fires...

There is little evidence of that time in the company, but you can always download a product catalogue dating back to the nineteen-sixties. The current range is fortunately much broader!

The current plant is situated in Béthune, Northern France, in the Pierrette area, rue Bernard Palissy, of course... The premises date from 1991 and facilitate traditional ceramic manufacturing operations on-site, from shaping the objects right up to the final stage, glazing. Shipments to the entire world depart from Béthune, which constitutes the world centre of funerary ceramics...

Unique know-how

Our work instrument enables the production of flowers, plaques, wreaths, vases and urns, but also other glazed products in small series for the building trade, sanitation etc ... Indeed, the raw materials that we use make our products weatherproof and frost-resistant. They are therefore particularly suitable for outdoor use.
