celduc, which is a contraction of Construction Electriques DU Centre (electrical construction of the centre), was founded in 1962 by Michel Guichard the grandson of the famous Geoffroy Guichard.
Celduc is the result of the merger of two companies acquired by Michel Guichard. La Scare, a Saint Chamonese company specialising in fine winding and small transformers, and Transformateur Industriel, located in Grenoble.
In 1962 Mr Guichard bought a parcel of land in Sorbiers in the department of the Loire, to build his factory. The construction started in 1963.
In July 1964 the two sites of Saint Chamont and Grenoble moved to Sorbiers. The factory, located near the forest and the field, is ready for operation. It is the starting point of the great celduc’s adventure.
celduc started out by manufacturing electrical coils of all sizes, from the smallest for the telecommunications industry, to the largest for the power generation sector.
