Welcome to our production workshop!

Caminade workshop

Welcome to our production workshop!

The first years of a company are similar to those of a child who is growing up and heading towards adulthood.

We must learn to walk, to read, to count, to make our own choices, in order to fly on our own wings.

Putting into place our new production workshop was an important step for Caminade, marking a new stage in our development. It brings together all our know how, and has been designed to enable us to fabricate all our models from start to finish. From tubes in steel, stainless steel or titanium, right through to the finished painted frame which leaves for it’s happy new owner.

Guided visit of our "manufacture" taking in the different stages of creating a frame:
