Heritage Collection acquires J.L Coquet
The Heritage Collection Group acquires two French porcelain brands in Limoges - J.L Coquet and Jaune de Chrome
J.L Coquet and Jaune de Chrome are two porcelain manufacturers in Limoges that have been purchased by Heritage Collection, a new industrial group purely dedicated to French and European expertise.
Created in 2014, Heritage Collection is an industrial group whose sole objective is to enter the capital of companies with traditional French and European savoir‐ faire, companies that represent excellence in products for the home and people.
Heritage Collection's ambition is to combine marketing, sales and management resources of the different companies to improve their development, particularly on the international stage. In time, Heritage Collection will enter the capital of a dozen companies who are emblematic of European savoir‐faire.
The group's first two acquisitions were J.L Coquet (Hemispheres collection by J.L Coquet pictured) and Jaune de Chrome. The group has provided 2 million euros in equity to ensure their development. These two companies employ around sixty people and produce over 200,000 porcelain objects a year, all made exclusively in France.
Christian Le Page, the director of J.L Coquet who launched Jaune de Chrome in the 1980s, remains a shareholder in the two companies and will continue to oversee the creative and artistic side of the businesses.
