Our competences and resources never cease to impress our demanding and discerning customer base, making us one of the foremost French specialists in carpentry and premium interior planning.
A long family tradition
Our roots are in the Limousin region of south-central France, where Emery Lachaumette was born in 1779. He became a carpenter and passed on his passion for wood to his heirs.
Six generations later, in Orly (south of Paris), Cédric Lachaumette continues his family’s tradition as the head of Lachaumette Chaput. Today, our company employs about 50 highly-qualified men and women in our offices, workshops and customer sites. If required, we can also mobilise various loyal business partners, including a large manufacturing site on the banks of the Loire river, artisan carpenters, freelance quantity surveyors and works supervisors.
All our teams work with proven French traditions. We respect your wishes and technical constraints, while using cutting-edge technologies and current standards.

Lachaumette Chaput pursues a programme of responsibility to protect the environment.
As often as possible, we use woods that comply with PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) or FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) standards for responsible and sustainable forestry management.
For our finishes – whether oils, varnishes, lacquer or paint – we increasingly use natural or tinted oils as well as waterborne varnishes, lacquers and paints that comply with HQE specifications (Haute Qualité Environnementale, a French standard for quality and sustainability in the construction sector).
Lachaumette Chaput is committed to the wellbeing and training of its employees.
Together with the OPPBTP, the French Professional Agency for Risk Prevention in Building and Civil Engineering, we run multiple training programmes on first aid, assembling mobile scaffolding, installing windows using a harness, accreditations for electrical work, and the use of specific motorised rolling equipment.
