The origins of the THIOLAT company go back to 1874. Its savoir-faire in forming cardboard started with the making of hat and shoe boxes. In the 1960’s the company turned its attention to bakers / confectioners with the production of cake boxes.


  • Founding of the THIOLAT company in Blois. The company specialised in bookbinding and the manufacture of hat boxes and shoe boxes.

  • Re-orientation of the production towards folding cardboard boxes and especially boxes for confectionery. For its distribution the company relied on networks of wholesalers and distributors of raw materials and packaging for bakers / confectioners.

  • Thiolat moved to a new location and equipped itself with new industrial resources in tune with its growth.

  • THIOLAT opened its frontiers and adopted a policy of export.

  • A subsidiary was opened in Valencia, Spain

  • A subsidiary was created in Romania, in Sibiu, with a second production plant.

  • Innovation with a high visibility box concept to improve the perception of product quality.

  • Continuation of the export drive with the opening of a sales office in Dubai
