In 2019, Wichard will celebrate 100 years 


919-2019. We will soon be celebrating our 100th birthday, marking a century here at Wichard. The H Wichard & Cie Company was created in the Forges De La Croix De Fer factory on the first of May 1919 by Henri Wichard and his associates. In a nod to modern times, our industrial company was founded on Labour Day itself!

And a labour of love it was, transforming the Wichard Company from a cutlery sub-contractor to a globally renowned equipment manufacturer for the yachting sector and precision part supplier for the mechanical, automobile, aeronautics and medical industries. The core running through each of these sectors is a shared commitment to quality, and the tool that lets us achieve it is the forge. This ancient technology has been enhanced and improved by our teams to the point where it has become a byword for quality and reliability.  We have now reached the level where each of our products is endorsed by the “Safety” label.

Today, Wichard embraces fully modernised equipment and a diverse team of professionals around our Forge.  This team handles everything from tools to machining and assembly, all in a strict quality environment sanctioned by 4 ISO certifications (9001, 9100, 14001 and 13485).
It may have taken the company 70 years to transform itself and reach other markets, but the 30 years which followed have seen huge external growth. The Thiernoise Company provided the foundations needed to form a Group of 8 companies, each renowned in their own field and each with their own technical solutions in their own sector. We work with steel, stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, composites and carbon, creating products and solutions for the most stringent client demands.

None of this would have been possible without the men and women who have worked and still work within our company. Their hard work has made the impossible possible: world sailing records, solitary odysseys, family world tours, travel to the harshest zones, medical operations, car racing, aeronautics and so many other events that we now take for granted.

We know there is still a long way to go and that we can’t rest on our laurels just yet.  This is why the Wichard team is gearing up and preparing for the forge of the future.
