THE LE CREUSET STORY

 

Le Creuset story image

THE EXPANSION YEARS (1958 - 1991)

 

In 1957, Le Creuset purchased a major competitor, Les Hauts Fourneaux Cousances, a company with a legendary history of its own. Additions of items such as a grill model and a fondue set added variety to our product lines. In 1958, Raymond Loewy, best known for his design of the Coca-Cola bottle, introduced the streamlined Coquelle French oven; in 1972, celebrated Italian designer Enzo Mari created a distinctly different handle shape for the traditional cocotte.

 

The United States subsidiary was begun in South Carolina in 1974, and in 1991, we purchased Hallen International Inc., a maker of wine accessories under the Screwpull trademark.
