The Archimbaud Group
Key player in the wood industry
As part of the environmental approach that has characterised its development in recent years, the Archimbaud Group also treats forestry brushwood and related waste by producing energy in a biomass cogeneration plant. This commitment, which limits its carbon footprint, enables its industrial activity to move towards energy neutrality.
After 30 years of intense transformation
The Archimbaud family business, still anchored in the Deux-Sèvres and Landes regions, has become a reference sawmill in the forestry-wood sector as well as in the pallet sector. With the acquisition of the company Migeon in 2011 and that of Francepal at the end of 2020, the group has also established itself as one of the very first French manufacturers of pallets made exclusively from French wood.
With a progressive family culture and a vision of reconciling economic, social and environmental issues, the company is on the threshold of a new transition. Its sale to a foundation, which will eventually become the group's majority shareholder, guarantees its projection towards a sustainable future that respects its founding values: pioneering spirit, solidarity, loyalty and simplicity.
