Membership charter

Presenting the association

Created in 1997, the association Pierre de Bourgogne aims to promote Burgundy stone principally through communication and counselling. It unites thirty some members representing a wide range of enterprises in Burgundy: artisans, stone cutters, sculptors, quarrymen (extraction of stone), processors (cutting and finishing by machine) layers and roofers. The association serves as a link between these different companies to initiate exchanges within the stone industry and to federate common interests for effective representation. The association collaborates with organizations whose purpose is to train future professionals for stone works: the Lycée des Marc d'Or in Dijon and  the Compagnons du Devoir.  Strongly present on the international scene, Burgundy stone has been used to grace numerous significant structures worldwide, for example the TAIPEI FINANCIAL CENTER in TAIWAN, several skyscrapers in CHICAGO, the Palm Springs Airport in LOS ANGELES, buildings in JAPAN, in the UNITED EMIRATES... Associated members accompany Pierre de Bourgogne each year to the major international trade fairs: Marmomacc Expo of Verona (Italy), Big 5 Dubaï, the Salon du Patrimoine of Paris, and other trade fairs in France. The interventions and actions of the association are supported by The Regional Council of Burgundy-Franche-Comté,  The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Burgundy(which provides the office).
