MICHAUD‘s history started in the fifties, in the South-Eastern of France. At this time, two brothers having wooded lands decided to exploit this family asset in order to manufacture structural beams for the housing industry. The geographic proximity of the firm with EDF (the French utility) in Bourg-en-Bresse gave birth to a close and strong relationship between both entities that led MICHAUD to specialize in electrical equipment.
