Individualism made by Villeroy & Boch
Heralded the world over for its exquisite range of ceramics, Villeroy & Boch from the Saarland traces its origins back to 1748. The French Revolution would take place only half a century later, the German ones a full century later. François Boch bore the magnificent title of Bombardier du Roi. The royal iron founder from the village of Audun-le-Tiche in Lorraine however, had a different career in mind for himself and his three sons and set up a manufacture of ceramic crockery. Later on in history the Iron Chancellor Bismarck would model his social insurance schemes on that of the company who had by then already been putting them to good use for over seventy years. Today the company is still as industrious and avant-garde as it has ever been. The latest testimony to this must be its internet presence as Thomas Ochs and Béatrice Jungblut, respectively Chief Information Officer and Director of Corporate Marketing and Online may demonstrate: if needed even in 3D.
