2008: Opening of the Art-Restoration garage by Patrick Pugin. I am a man passionate about Porsche and very beautiful mechanics. After restorations for my own pleasure, I decided to put my knowledge to the reach of the most demanding and to make my job.
An extraordinary journey
After initial training in automotive trades, I developed, for 18 years, my managerial skills in two international industrial groups. It is through these experiences that I acquired organizational methods, and quality tools that complement my initial training as a craftsman.
Living Heritage Company
In 2015, Art Restoration joined the 1300 French companies benefiting from the EPV label!
The Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label is a mark of recognition of the State set up to distinguish French companies with craftsmanship and industrial excellence.
These exceptional companies share the same values and the same source of inspiration: a harmony between tradition and innovation, a permanent quest for excellence, a creative spirit and a deep respect for the profession.
Art Restoration is proud of its new Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label, which rewards the daily efforts to safeguard old trades in sheet metal, paint, upholstery, and mechanics.
It is also through training specific to old technologies that we have developed, that this knowledge can continue with our profession. But it’s every day, in the minutia of each task carried out in the workshop, that the EPV experts have recognized the mastery of traditional technical gestures, and it’s a great reward!
