Santos, a French company, was created in 1954 by André Fouquet to provide professional coffee grinders and cheese graters to small retailers.
The company’s development since then has been based on our savoir-faire with respect to production of motors, and this is undoubtedly one of the reasons why Santos’ products are reputed for their robustness and reliability.
50 years after the launch of its first product, the company continues to grow via innovation and development of new products at its headquarters in Lyons (two hours by train from Paris and Geneva).
We have three different product lines: coffee, fresh drinks, and food preparation.
The thousands of high quality appliances that are produced in our factory are in accordance with the most stringent international regulations (UL, GS, CE, NSF, KETI, GOST, etc…) and can be adapted to all relevant voltages.
