People define the essence of our know-how


With an ability to not only machine a design but also to design a machine – creating tools for the manufacture of jewelry or buttons –, Alexandre joined Desrues after earning a vocational diploma. “This is a profession that may be applied to a number of fields, such as the automotive, medical, aeronautic and luxury industries. At Desrues, it is far from a repetitive factory job. I never do the same thing from one day to the next. I am fortunate to be involved in a very wide range of activities and at several levels of the production line. Creating tools, fashioning molds, performing assembly tasks or even machining whole pieces… We use a full range of machines (grinders, metal turners, electrical discharge machines).

We stay abreast of new technologies with the latest processes and the continual improvement of our machines. Above all, I bring my technical expertise to Desrues from a more industrial viewpoint. I consider the execution techniques and the feasibility of a product. In some sectors, projects can stretch out over months or years. Here, we have to be able to create a full collection – and the tools required to produce it – within a few weeks. From first inspiration to the finished product. It is very stimulating.”
