Our 100% French board factory
Vanerum France moved to a larger factory in January 2018. This new 9000 sq. m. factory, based in Marly (59), marks a new stage in its history.

In this factory, which today employs 75 people, boards and showcases for schools and offices are anufactured according to Lean manufacturing methods.

All the steps are done on site: cutting, gluing, assembly, quality control and packing.

Our responsible approach

Although it has belonged to several owners, VANERUM France has managed to maintain its founding values, which are those of the craftsman, despite history, wars and crises, thanks to its essential capacity for resilience.

In this desire for sustainability and this spirit of sincerity, Vanerum France has kept the permanent concern to "do right, sustainable and together" around the values of responsibility, authenticity and solidarity. Sustainable development is a continuation of this philosophy and is based on our achievements rather than on distant commitments.
