The Marotte company has been operating in the area of Jura for 4 generations, manufacturing gift packaging, deluxe constructions and stands for wine, but also products for other sectors, such as games, special skis for children, etc.
Simple wooden boxes, elegant cases, and special manufactures are proposed, according on the client's wishes, after study by the Marotte technical department.
Many kinds of wood are used as raw material: aspen, fir, pine, beech, oak, American cedar, African woods, etc.
All products are certified by the PEFC, the most specialized forest-certification body in France, and comply with European directive norm NIMP15 for the deinsectization of wood.
Manufacturing and finishing are carried out on the automated production line by special machines designed by Marotte’s own engineers, machines that work with multiple heads in five axes. Almost every year Marotte invests in new equipment that allows it to maintain the leading place it occupies.
There are many options, from simple joining with nails to rounded corners at many levels, the creation of special shapes, leather coverings, special paints, ecological varnishes, etc.
Printing capabilities on wood are no less than those of modern printing on paper. They can be made with one millimeter resolution, even with four-color or five-color printing, with silver foil stamping and classic wood burning, including over varnish, whether colorless or colored, matte, satin or glossy.
There are also options in the design of the die used for printing, as well as the capability of adding embossing, stainless steel elements, etc.
Pascal Marotte, who in 1970 took over at the helm of the company, creates original manufactures according to the desires and capacities of the client.
All thisled the magazine "Le Bois International" in its article of January 28, 2012 to recognize Marotte as one of the highest quality and most competitive companies in its field, even compared to those in Asia.
