Our History

Founded in October 2012, WANECQUE has in the space of 6 years emerged as one of the leading fine metalworking firms in France.

After serving various apprenticeships in the course of his studies to qualify as an engineer, Romain Wanecque took the decision to create his own artisanal metalwork firm and set up shop in a 150m² workshop in Haillan in south-western France.

His order book very quickly filled up and he was soon obliged to take on his first employee. After that, he didn’t look back, and thanks to an ambitious investment and recruitment plan, the business soon reached critical size.

It was at this point in December 2014 that Romain decided to bring the engineer Samuel Notebaert on board as a shareholder in the firm. Together they have built the company up to what it is today. They soon moved into a new 2,000m² workshop and assembled a talented and passionate team.

 

Our firm now has 75 employees and our brand-new fleet of machinery means that we can take on projects of any size, including ambitious architectural projects.
