Introduction

Boulemberg is a family-owned business passed down from father to son since 1898. No wonder it is considered nothing short of a genuine family for its personnel. These pleasant working conditions definitely reflect on the quality of our windows and doors…

1898

Jean-Baptiste Boulemberg has just turned 20 and settles as a carpenter/cabinet maker in the outbuildings of the family home nearby the Braine-l’Alleud railway station. He manufactures furniture, window frames, doors…

1945

Léon Boulemberg, son of Jean-Baptiste, takes over and extends the business.

He sets up a new workshop along the railway
of Braine-l’Alleud and adds a showroom.

1963

Léon Boulemberg passes away and his wife Jeanne
runs the business with her sons Jean and Jacques.

They employ 8 people.
They manufacture interior doors, cupboards, stairs…

Innovation: Boulemberg wants to deal with the crisis without shedding jobs and is among the first to produce PVC window frames.

1972

Jean and Jacques combine their efforts and expand the business (that still manufactures furniture) even further and also specialize in interior design.

They have 12 people in service and have completed some major projects amongst which:

  • the trading room of the Benelux bank
    (later Indosuez)
  • the Sofitel on Avenue de la Toison d’Or in Brussels
  • the counters of DI stores in Belgium

Boulemberg, pioneer in environmentally friendly choices, uses its timber waste (wood cuts and sawdust) to heat its workshops and offices!

2008

At the death of Roland, Bernard assumes control over the business single-handedly.

2009

Innovation: to offer the quality and warmth of wood inside and the convenience of aluminium outside, Boulemberg introduces aluminium-clad window profiles which are made of solid timber with the extra protection of aluminium cladding on the external side of the window frame.

The buildings covering 7000 m² are almost exclusively
allocated to production.

Bernard Boulemberg makes new eco-friendly choices:

  • all timber is sourced from sustainably managed forests in Europe
  • all timber used by Boulemberg is FSC- or PEFC-certified
  • the timber is only freighted by rail
  • exotic woods are however available on request
