Abrisud No. 1 in Europe

Abrisud wa founded in 1996 with a simple idea and a bold challenge: to make the removable pool enclosure a technically sophisticated product that everyone can afford.
Carried by a policy based on quality, ongoing innovation, proximity and investment, Abrisud soon became the most well-established company on the market.

It was taken over in 2005 by Jean-Pierre Charpentier and François-Xavier Desgrippes, and Abrisud now has nearly 300 people working for it.
Whether they work at head office, on our manufacturing sites or in our sales branches, all our employees are driven by a constant guest for quality.

Since 1999, Abrisud has continued to develop outside France and is currently present in 11 European countries.
Abrisud’s growth is closely linked to its ability to innovate. Its investment in Research & Development has led to the lodging of a large number of Patents (INPI) that have won a whole string of awards.

Since 2011, François-Xavier Desgrippes and Jean Meyer have been running the company as CEO and Managing Director respectively.


¹The Patents are registered in France and are currently undergoing a PCT procedure in Europe.
