Our history

It was in Paris, in 1902, that Georges Weber began manufacturing plaster and lime coatings for facade cladding.

In 1910, the small company left for the American adventure and dressed the stairwells of the tallest skyscraper in the world, the Woolworth Building.

Twenty-five years after its creation, in 1927, Weber bought its competitor and Parisian neighbor to form the Weber and Broutin establishments, which exported mainly to the United States.

In 1929, with the Wall Street Crash, the American market closed. Weber and Broutin found new life thanks to the Paris International Exhibition in 1937.

The company is launching key products in the Reconstruction effort: Pétrifiore, a paint that avoids porosity, Cimentolithe, a protective and decorative coating. They adorn the buildings and new houses and even the facades of the palace of the very young film festival in Cannes!

1964 marks the start of national expansion for Weber to get closer to its customers. The acquisition of Weber and Broutin by the Poliet group in 1970 gave it the means to achieve its ambitions. From its modern headquarters in Servon, Weber et Broutin covers all of France with 11 production centers and 13 distribution centers.

The 1970s were also marked by the acceleration of product innovations thanks to the development of R&D: in 1972, Weber launched monocalite, the first single-layer coating and diversified its product offering, with the first insulating mortar, Rékalor, in 1980 , and the Ferma range, in 1988 which became the reference for tilers.

This diversification is accompanied by the development of customer services, which Weber has made one of its trademarks. Weber guides its customers on the choice of products, provides them with technical details, and created the essential Weber guide in the early 1990s.

Thanks to the acquisition of Poliet by Saint-Gobain in 1996, Weber took on a global dimension and expanded its presence particularly in South America, Asia and the Middle East.

Weber today brings together more than 10,000 people in around fifty countries.

This incredible expansion transformed the small Parisian company into a global group in the space of a few decades. It has succeeded in preserving its identity and its values, reaffirmed during the Coweberation, in particular quality know-how, and, which is the strength of the company, a spirit and a way of living together.
