Since first created in 1918 by Adrien Bourgeat, the company has always specialised in the manufacture of materials and equipment for professional kitchens.

In 1981 the company stopped manufacturing products for the general public and focused on developing equipment for institutional and commercial catering.

In 2002, Bourgeat merged with Matfer to form the Matfer Bourgeat group and offer a range of over 15,000 products to the catering and baking industries.

Today Bourgeat designs and manufactures a range of equipment to run a kitchen in compliance with standards on hygiene and hot and cold meal distribution. From the kitchen to the dining room, Bourgeat's expertise is there to preserve the taste of the food prepared while ensuring the utmost respect for food safety rules!

For almost a century, Bourgeat has been pursuing a policy aimed at meeting its customers' and partners' requirements within a culture of on-going improvement and sustainable development.

The ISO 9001 standard : obtained in January 1994, with a move to the "2000 version" in December 2002, this standard controls product traceability throughout the production chain and provides qualitative monitoring for customers. To do this, operators in the workshops must be trained for the posts and the tools they work with. This training allows staff to operate self-controls.

The ISO 14001 standard : obtained in July 2001, it touches on the key environmental aspects of the company's business. It aims to ensure compliance with French and European regulations in terms of nuisance, pollution and discharges of any kind, with the end objective being sustainable development.

The OHSAS 18001 standard : Obtained in December 2005, it more particularly relates to health, hygiene and safety in the workplace. It aims to continually improve the working conditions of all the company's employees in compliance with regulations.
