Our story

1946

Jean-Baptiste Legendre set up his small business in Amanlis (France). With just one worker and one apprentice to call on, he carried out home improvement and masonry work in the town and surrounding area. (He was joined by his son Jean-Paul in 1968, then by his second son, Gilbert, in 1973.)

 

1983


Jean-Baptiste Legendre left the company in the hands of his son Jean-Paul. The building crisis which prevailed at that time forced the company to seek out markets beyond its original region of Ille-et-Vilaine (French département 35). The business then started to take off across western France, Paris and the Île-de-France region and the company grew from 3 to 25 employees.

1993 – 2000

The business also grew quickly in Rennes and Nantes, mainly thanks to major structural work in the housing sector. Development of the real estate business and the geographical expansion of our business after the ’98 building crisis.
