A strategic location

A family story

Mithieux Metal Protect is an innovative, dynamic and responsive industrial company located in Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, in the Savoie department (73), on the Geneva - Grenoble - Lyon - Turin axis, in the industrial area of Chambéry.

We benefit from highly technical expertise recognized for three generations in the anticorrosion protection of metals.

Originally, the Mithieux company was created by Joseph Mithieux in 1937, then taken over by his three sons Georges, Guy and Jean-Pierre Mithieux who developed the manual and automated processing of auto parts. The third generation took over from the 2010s, with Guillaume, Laurent, Julien Mithieux and Jonathan Fhima as general manager. Together, they develop automated processing in medium and large series and diversify the customer portfolio.

A new identity for new momentum

In 2021, “Mithieux” becomes “Mithieux Metal Protect” with a new graphic identity. This name change is the culmination of a year of internal audit and reflection on the strategic positioning of the company. Our objective is to support sectors undergoing transformation and / or energy transition and to provide real quality of service, innovative and agile.
