Laurent Bergez founded the marble craftworks in Saint Jean de Luz, South-West France, in 1939. At that time business was mainly concerned with cutting gravestones and other funerary art objects. Then his daughter, Francette and her husband, Etienne Retegui took over the business in 1973 and developed and modernized the production plant. In 1999, it was the turn of Claude Retegui, the founder’s grandson, to take the helm of the family business.
Based on his extensive knowledge as a building and civil engineer, Claude created the 3D Technology department which allowed new avenues to be developed combining stone and composite materials. Today, the Retegui Marble Company has an experienced staff of twelve, including engineers and marble journeymen. These master craftsmen can call upon the company’s highly technical and state-of-the-art equipment to manufacture complex objects with the greatest precision.
