For more than 100 years Wichard's main mission has been to provide all customers with quality products that ensure both safety and optimum performance for their sports and professional activities.
Wichard was founded in 1919 in Thiers by Henri Wichard. The company specialized initially in the manufacture of forged safety parts for industry. In the early 1970s, it took a decisive turn by working with the top sailors of the time, such as Moitessier, Tabarly and Alain Colas to develop its first boat fittings. However, it still maintained its powerful industrial activity.
50 years later, the Wichard brand has accompanied generations of sailors around the world. Wichard products are now fitted by all major yards, used by the most demanding sailors and sold in 5 continents through the company’s global distributor network.
Choosing a Wichard product means above all choosing a quality product that will ensure safety and performance during your voyages.
