French manufacturer of molds and pastry utensils for more than five generations, the story of Gobel begins in Paris, 43/45 rue Faubourg du Temple.
At the end of the 19th century, the era was one of exuberance, French gastronomy exploded and aroused the curiosity of gourmets and chefs from all over the world. Desserts, increasingly sophisticated, are becoming the essential gourmet symbols of special occasions.
Its founder, Etienne Gobel, saw the fact that this craze for pastry has only just begun and developed a very wide range of professional quality copper and tinplate moulds. The company then became one of the leading French manufacturers of pastry utensils and conquered foreign markets from the beginning of the 20th century.
Soon cramped within its Parisian walls, in 1919 Gobel set up its production workshop in Touraine, at Joué-lès-Tours, where the tradition is still perpetuated today.
In 2014, Gobel received the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label. This label, a real sign of recognition from the State, was set up to distinguish French companies with excellent craftsmanship and industrial know-how.
