History

Founded in 1864, the sawmill ¨Les Avivés de L`est¨ and its collaborators, perpetuate and perfect an age old know-how in the wood and sawing industry.

Taken over in 1999 by Eric Ducrot and Eric Julien, the present shareholders, ¨Les Avivés de l`est¨ has managed to anticipate the challenges of the 21st century and the new demands of its customers. As a result, the company turnover has doubled over the past 10 years.
In the present context of increasing competitiveness, thanks to the combined efforts of the managers and collaborators, the company currently realizes 30% of its turnover on an international scale; proof that it is possible to both maintain and develop a high quality local production while making the most of the expansion of the market.

On a short term basis, ¨Les Avivés de L`est¨ intends to follow this line of action, by developing its export markets, by launching a new range of outdoor products, and above all, by backing up innovation, thanks to a highly ambitious investment policy.
