History

Fichet was founded by Alexandre Fichet in 1825. In 1840, Fichet made his first fire-resistant safe, the popularity of which allowed him to open two new factories in Lyon and Marseille.[1] In 1879, Fichet built its first bank strongroom.

In 1967, Fichet and Bauche (a fire safe company) merged. Since then, the Fichet brand has become a variety of different companies, including Fichet-Bauche, FBH-Fichet, and Fichet Point Fort. Fichet Point Fort is owned by ASSA-Abloy.
