The industry


The history of the Group begins in 1825 with the creation of the Arques’ Verrerie-Cristallerie,

a small family business which, after the First World War, experienced spectacular growth under the impetus of its managers: Georges Durand and his son Jacques.

Arcoroc develops a range of innovative and functional global tableware solutions designed for intensive use in the restaurant industry.

Arcoroc’s collections anticipate the expectations of professionals and effectively support their creativity and their desire to satisfy their customers.

A constant search for complete and effective solutions has made Arcoroc the preferred partner of the most important hotel, restaurant and bar chains.


As early as 1930, the Verrerie Cristallerie d’Arques was a pioneer in this field.

The first tank furnace and the first presses were installed. Then, a few years later, the first glass-blowing machines, technologies imported from the United States, still unknown on the European continent.
