Setforge Gauvin

Located in La Monnerie le Montel, in the Thiernois region, Setforge Gauvin currently employs 90 collaborators (excluding temporary staff and future recruits).

Founded in 1934, the company started out in cutlery before specializing in automotive and stainless-steel forging. In the 1980s, the site was relocated close to the A89 motorway to facilitate logistics flows to customers and enable growth.

Today, the company has a turnover higher than 28 million euros, and continues to grow. Setforge Gauvin, whose expertise is internationally recognized, generates 84% of its sales from exports, including 21% outside Europe.


Driven by innovation, our Design & Methods department supports the development of your projects through a co-design approach. We offer complete and high value-added solutions (in-house machining or with our partners, assembly).

Thanks to our knowledge of metallurgy and processes, we have mastered the forging of carbon and micro-alloy steels, as well as stainless steels.
