Originating from a long family tradition of 8 generations, the Lécuyer establishments created in 1725 were able to innovate and diversify. Our history and our know-how, which are more than 250 years old, are real assets on a daily basis to enhance our production. The ongoing search for performance is in our DNA.
The forerunner Robert Lécuyer in 1725 in Drucourt made work of ribbon trades. The LECUYER establishments quickly established themselves as the first ribbons of Normandy and reached their peak during the Second Empire. The weaving Lecuyer is today the only survivor of the glorious textile past of this region.
In 2002, the Etablissements Lécuyer, while retaining their traditional activity, diversified into the manufacture of technical tapes and straps for various industrial applications.
Every year, Etablissements Lécuyer creates products either by its own services or at the request of its customers.
