In 1950 Julian Haudiquez and Andre Tetard formed a partnership and took a small factory site in the village of Bethencourt sur Mer, France. The new factory was named simply “Robinetterie de la Poste.” Shortly after the formation of the business, Alexandre Grisoni met Haudiquez and Tetard and joined as the third partner. They soon developed a technical accuracy and excellence in their products at every stage of manufacture. This quickly led to elaborate products far more excellent than commercial products required.
Their reputation began to spread within the industry when in 1965 a designer by the name of Jean-Claude Delepine called upon them to manufacture his designs. Inspired by designs from castles, chateaux and jewelry the young designer’s creations were breathtaking in their beauty. He insisted that only the finest manufacturer make his designs come to life and so began JCD Creations and his lifelong partnership with THG. In 1995 THG purchased JCD Designs reinforced their position as the most dynamic and forward thinking company in the field.
In 1970 the corporation was renamed THG after the three original partners and their relationship as the the producer of the JCD ranges was established. Over the ensuing 20 years the three partners succeeded in creating one of the foremost faucet and fitting factories in the world. Today the respected tradition of this unique company continues on as a dynamic group headed by its managing director, Michel Gosse and his wife, Mme Laurence Gosse-Tetard (daughter of Andre Tetard), its President.
