Balsan

BALSAN BRAND HISTORY

For more than three centuries, Balsan has been a key player in textile design. Originating from a Manufacture Royale, then bought by Pierre Balsan in 1857, the French company maintains entrepreneurship and desire to innovate. His audacity led Louis Balsan to import the tuft technique in France, a technique that is still widely used today by manufacturers of textile floorings. In 2006, due to its rapid expansion, Balsan joined the Belgian Belgotex International group.

Proud of its Berry origins, Balsan has two industrial sites located in the heart of a prestige natural environment near Châteauroux, which is perfectly preserved. Forerunner of sustainable development, the company multiplies its actions to preserve its natural environment: zero landfill waste, partnership with the ONF, use of Econyl® yarn, activated sludge water plant, waste recovery.

With a surface area of ​​45,000 sqm, the Arthon manufacturing site is dedicated to the manufacture of wide width carpets, while the Neuvy-Saint-Sépulcre site specializes in the manufacture of planks and carpet tiles. This 100% Made in France manufacturing creates colorful carpets with a strong creative potential, for Office, Hotel and Home.

Balsan offers its know-how in France and worldwide. The company relies on the skills of its 250 employees and generates an annual turnover of nearly 70 million euros, 45% of which comes from exports.

Balsan’s philosophy is to think of the floor as a true means of expression on its own. Balsan exploits the creative potential of carpet through colors: the true DNA of the company.

The company is also committed to supporting young artists by setting up partnerships with French and International Design Schools (Dare Your Dreams®) or by organizing exhibitions for young designers (Marta Bakowski and Laureline Galliot).
