History of the company Louis Genève S.A


In 2021, Louis Genève S.A. will celebrate its 45th anniversary. Thanks to the joint efforts of all our employees, our company has grown from a simple carpentry company with a few employees in 1976 to a pillar of the carpentry and joinery industry in the Geneva region. 

With new premises and an on-site workshop spanning of more than 1800m2 (includes design, cutting, assembly, painting, drying, storage and technical offices) we now have an organised structure and a reactive and versatile staff that will be able to meet your expectations. Through our know-how and our experience, we can satisfy your requests of carpentry and frame made to measure.
