What about Montbron, a small Charente town of 2,200 inhabitants , has put himself in the design of Hermès? “It’s a craft with a tradition of making clothes and shoes, like shoes, jobs that have been lost over time,” explained Olivier Fournier, head of the handicrafts department. Hermès-Seller. “We will rely on this knowledge in Montbron, as we did in Nontron. Nontron, 300 jobs in the Dordogne, a typical example of development in the building, is only half an hour’s drive away from Montbron, which is not the least of its advantages: “Hermès is an important part of development. The nearness of Nontron encourages Montbron’s initiation. And Olivier Fournier says “in terms of ease of access” the LGV will soon arrive.

Supported by Charente Développement, a subsidiary of the Grand Council, Hermès looked at about ten business locations before choosing a ready-to-use building in Montbron, near Plantier, to share like an electromechanical assembly.

About a “piece of skin”

The Montbron factory will initially be supplied with small leather goods: “Bags, card holders that require the amount of care and precision in work . We maintain the ability to make bags when the workers are trained,” said Olivier Fournier, himself from Angoulême and “very happy to carry out this project in Charente. »
