Smelting plant Copper and Bronze Cornille Havard


The Cornille Havard Foundry is the heiress of a long tradition of bell founders settled in Villedieu-les-Poêles in Normandy since the Middle Ages. In the workshop built in 1865, a hundred monumental bells are born each year perpetuating the know-how and methods of the companions of yesteryear.


It combines the best of tradition with the best of technology. The foundry produces church bells, chimes, bronzes of Art and decoration (statues of artists and bas-reliefs). It is also responsible of the installation and maintenance of the electrical and electronic installations attached to the Campanile Art. The production shop is open to the public and receives more than 50,000 visitors each year.
