Founded in Saint- Chamond by Joannès ROMAGNY in 1971, LOIRE INDUSTRIE has made a name for itself on the flanges market thanks to its technical expertise and its important stock.
From 1990 to 2010
The company was sold in 1990 to the TROUVAY CAUVIN group. Then, in 2002, it was sold to FORGES ET MECANIQUE DE LA LOIRE, at this time managed by Richard ROMAGNY, then in 2009 to the Italian Group FORGITAL.
In 2010, LOIRE INDUSTRIE came back to the ROMAGNY family due to its takeover by the AIR Group composed of FORGES D’ALBERT, an open die forging unit specialized in small forged parts.
This business alliance gave a dynamic breath of air to the company thanks to a strategic policy of investments.
LOIRE INDUSTRIE has varied its activity and is developing a new activity of open die forging and ring rolling by investing in its own new forging plant set up next to the machining workshop in Saint Chamond.
Thanks to the variety and important size of its raw material stocking area, the pooling of its staff skills in both the forging as well as the flanges activities, its machining capacities and a well- known product quality, LOIRE INDUSTRIE possesses all the necessary assets to turn towards growing sectors such as nuclear power, energy and aerospace.
