Reuge Next step to the future
The ceremony of the foundation for the new building of Reuge has been held on September 5, 2014.
In 2015, Reuge will celebrate its 150th anniversary in a brand new 2700 m2 building in Sainte-Croix, birthplace of this mythical manufacturer of music boxes, mechanical singing birds and automaton pocket watches.
Reuge had been founded in 1865 and has been in its present manufacturing site for nearly 100 years. As time moved along and production evolved, the needs for space and equipment changed and the Company decided to look for a new site providing for the highest standards of craftsmanship and ergonomics. It will allow Reuge to continue refining its philosophy honed for a century and a half: listen to the clients and fulfill their ever so unusual requests, be it in the world of governments, companies or individuals.
The entire building will be covered with wood planks picturing a great wooden "music box" at the entrance of Sainte Croix.
