The control of materials used in the layout of boats

Etablissements De La Boisserolle, an independent company, has been supplying yacht builders for decades. Boating accounts for 60% of their turnover.

Their know-how in the production of panels is applied in both decorative and structural panels.

"Our work is the art of assembling materials. Originally, our core business was wood and its fine species, but today we go far beyond that by working and assembling new and technical materials. There is a culture of innovation and a quality of advice that makes our added value," explains Pierre Villeroy, marketing manager of Ets De La Boisserolle.

A wide range of panels

The manufacturer organizes its catalogue around 6 programs:

  • Wooden panels
  • Lightweight panels
  • Non-combustible panels
  • Sound absorption panels
  • Soundproofing panels
  • Flexible panels

To adapt it to the desired characteristics, the builder chooses the materials forming the core of the panel (wood, aluminium honeycomb, foam...) and the type of decorative coating (fine wood species, laminates, aluminium or stainless steel sheets, decorative films...).
