Since the acquisition of the company Léo François by the Vanderperre family, investment strategy has been aimed at expanding the stock of machines with the purchase of increasingly powerful presses: 400T, 630T, 1250T, and a 1600T in 2012.
Mr. Léo François created the eponymous company in Maubeuge.
The company relocated to Fourmies, Rue Victor Hugo.
Owing to insufficient space the plant relocated to Rue Marie Louise Meyer.
Mr. GAISNE, a businessman from Fourmies, bought out the company and focused its operations on three main areas:
– Cutting and stamping
– Office furniture
– Sheet-metal bending and painting
The company was split up with the founding of the company TECNITOL, specialising in office furniture.
