Rossignol a story close to the material
Founded in 1896, Rossignol
reached a European dimension in the 1970s. From 1999, Rossignol
resolutely opted for innovation by designing products in perfect harmony with the professional environment.
100 years of rubbing shoulders with raw materials, such as metal or plastic, have made Rossignol
an industrial expert.
A manufactured product is above all a material well chosen and adapted to its future use, the history of Rossignol
is undeniably an asset. Rossignol
today manufactures one of the widest ranges of indoor and outdoor bins, ashtrays, selective sorting solutions, lines of sanitary dispensers and quality equipment.
