Expertise in Wood and Corian®
Image is a contemporary joinery company which designs and manufactures Corian® furniture and top-of-the-range solid wood bathroom furniture.
Our company targets professionals and consumers in the fields of kitchens, bathrooms, professional or public equipment and in the world of design.
Our two main activities are:
1 / Custom-made vanity tops, furniture and fittings made from Corian® (a synthesized material produced by DuPont™). Production can be unit or serial. Since 1991, when Image was chosen by Du Pont de Nemours to fit Corian®, the company has acquired experience in numerous fields, from kitchen and bathroom worktops to the shaping of top-of-the-range Corian® furniture, including equipment such as reception desks, public bathrooms and hospital draining boards. Image now works in collaboration with kitchen designers and architects, taking charge of the complete production of work tops from measurement to installation.
Christophe Isaac is supported by a team of 15 people who manage the advisory and manufacturing functions right up to installation.
- Requests for estimates are responded to rapidly using the most exact price calculations, validated by experience.
- The research department provides technical advice for complex and innovative projects.
- The foreman, in conjunction with the research department, regularly adjusts the production planning to customers’ time constraints.
- In addition to their training in joinery or fitting, employees receive in-house training in Corian® shaping techniques.
- The company has almost 20 years’ experience in Corian® shaping and thermoforming.
- A loyal team of meticulous fitters specializing in the fitting and finishing of Corian®.
- Guarantee: In our capacity as a Certified Corian® Fitter and Quality Network member, the DuPont company guarantees our products for 10 years.
- In the production of solid wood baths and basins, the company Image is supported by the 1985 manufacturing patent and has since improved its application.
- Our 20 years’ experience in manufacturing wood basins and baths ensure their quality and durability.
The company Image initiated a quality control procedure in 2002: Qualipem, in accordance with ISO 9001. Since then it has constantly been improving its formal internal targets in order to best meet customers’ expectations in terms of quality and service: Each project is confirmed by a technical design layout to be validated; production is controlled at each stage; internal measures are taken regularly to prevent non-conformity.
For the last 10 years, Image has been one of France’s leading Certified Corian Fitters in terms of turnover. This volume of business enables the company to obtain the best purchasing terms.
It is through this constant optimization of logistical flows and the rationalization of its production that Image is able to offer its customers the best quality-price ratios on its services and has been able to keep its prices unchanged for the last eight years.
In addition to the digitally controlled router, furnaces and vacuum press for thermoforming Corian, Image is the only company in the field to have a device equipped with digital sensors for template creation. The result obtained is an unprecedented degree of precision in dimensioning, as well as a reduction in time and waste.
