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 Point Fort Fichet. Point Fort Fichet is owned by ASSA-Abloy. Fichet-Bauche was acquired by the Gunnebo Security Group in 1999. In 2018, Fichet-Bauche merged into the Fichet Group.[2]
