Massard & Cie

The story



Alexandre Massard founded the company in Monistrol, Haute-Loire, in 1825. He press-cuts sheet metal to make locks.

Around 1900


Mathieu Massard succeeds Alexandre Massard, and turns the company towards wrought ironwork.


The Great War

Mathieu Massard works for the military industry, producing 75 mm shells.


Massard et Cie

After the war, Jean Massard and Paul Bonche, Mathieu Massard’s son-in-law, transformed the small company into Massard et Cie.


Prisoner studs

From 1955 onwards, production expanded to include “prisoner” studs, used in machine tools, automobiles, tractors, valves and pipe fittings.


Suzanne Bonche

In 1979, Suzanne Bonche took over the management of the company, which was transformed in the following years from a limited liability company into a limited liability company, and then into a simplified joint stock company.


Parts on plan

In the 90s, the company expanded its range of services to include machining of turned parts to drawings (diameter 2 to 60 mm). New machines make it possible to produce large runs.


Xavier Bonche

In 2003, Xavier Bonche became Chairman of the company. In 2016, he had a new 1,800 m2 workshop built, doubling the production area and ensuring the continuity of a family history that has endured for almost 200 years.
