Professional Kitchen Equipment In the 50's, at Thonon-les-Bains, on the edge of the Leman lake, near Geneva, Jean BRON decides to manufacture a manual vegetable slicer in steel, on the request of Chefs, instead of existing wooden items.
The mandoline is born and Jean BRON is determined to make it well known in the whole world, associated with the BRON trademark, the litlle red flag.
All professional kitchens in the world know the BRON mandoline. Jean BRON will afterwards manufacture a chipper, a bread slicer, a dicer, with the same quality. In 1975, after having moved to larger premises, theJean BRON Company is bought by André COUCKE, native of the North of France and small textile manufacturer.
