Bosc was founded in 1964 by Marcelle and Joseph Bastiat who met each other while working at Capdevielle factory. Their children, Alain and Michel grew up surrounded by wood shavings, the smell of wood, tools, textiles and varnish. Recently Alain, who manages the business with his wife, Geneviève, wanted to create a new brand. This carries the symbolic name of BOSC and is based on the experience and know-how in cabinet-making and upholstery for household chairs.
