The Doutre Fonchima Foundry
Our Story, our Fondry
The Doutre Fonchima Foundry was created in 2002 by Mr Gérard Doutre, still located in the town of Le Lion d’Angers in Maine-et-Loire, it specialises in the manufacture of cast aluminium and brass plaques.
Our customers are associations, local authorities, industrialists, retailers and private individuals. The company was taken over in 2020 by Romain Doutre (the son) who became the third generation of smelters in the family. All the products are hand-made, we have invested in a digital machine to be able to develop our products and thus meet demand.
The company’s activity is divided into three different parts: competition plaques (agricultural, equestrian, canine, etc.), which account for a large part of our turnover, but road and industrial plaques have risen sharply during the crisis, which has enabled the company to expand its know-how.
Made in France
For 20 years, the Doutre Fonchima Foundry has been making competition and agricultural plaques, trophies, roadways, brass number plaques and engravings, and custom-made plaques in Le Lion d'Angers.
