History.The first traces of foundry date back to prehistoric
times. The molds, modeled in soft stone to collect the molten
metal, were used to manufacture tools. This technique marked the
passage from Stone Age to the Bronze Age and the arrival of metal
in daily life and the arts. Today foundry work affects a wide
variety of fields like advanced industries such as aerospace. It
allows forming metal alloys, cast in sand molds. Enamelling, a
technique for coating metals, was used in Antiquity to decorate art
objects. Today this highly manual technique is used to coat the
objects of our daily life.
Chasseur enameled cast-iron cookware is manufactured at the Invicta foundry and enameling plants, which have been established since 1924 in Donchery, the French Champagne Ardenne region known all around the world for its food and wine. Today its know-how extends to sectors as different as culinary pottery, decoration, furniture, wood heating and barbeques. Invicta controls 100% of the manufacturing process in-house: design department, foundry, surface treatment, marketing and distribution.
