In 1830, in a Normandy village called Villedieu-les-Poêles, which is located near the Mont-Saint-Michel, Mr. Ernest Mauviel established the Mauviel manufacturing company.

With an 800 year heritage of copper manufacturing, Villedieu-les-Poêles is known as "the city of copper". From generation to generation the strength and foundation for Mauviel's manufacturing expertise and the tradition of copper manufacturing have been handed down. 

Since the very early years, by offering the highest quality products, Mauviel established themselves as a staple in the professional and commercial markets. Mauviel products are used by many famous chefs and professionals across the globe. Today, Mauviel continues to offer the professional chef, products that are unsurpassed in quality and design, while bringing these same products to kitchen/home retailers.
