Focus, a dynamic small business

Carole Delga, president of the regional council of Occitanie, presented the RMC ‘Export’ award to Guillaume Malaise, Focus’s export director, at the 9th annual ‘SMEs: Let’s Get Moving’ awards.

Today, Focus exports to 55 countries around the world through a network of distribution partners. We would like to thank them for their day-to-day work to make our models known in their markets and share with them this export prize that awards this work and collaboration.

Since the beginning of the company, Atelier Dominique Imbert chose the village of Viols-le-Fort, in the south of France, as its home. Its headquarters remains the farmhouse renovated by Dominique Imbert, the designer and founder of Focus. It is here that Focus fireplaces and other creations are imagined, designed and marketed. This tiny medieval hamlet at the foot of the Cévennes is also the base from which Focus exports everywhere around the globe.

International interest in Focus fireplaces is such that today almost 60% of our sales are for export.
