André Lavigne established Aluminor in Nice at the Côte d’Azur – the French Riviera in 1950 to manufacture camera shutters. A year later the company grows and develops into manufacturing lighting appliances, first as a subcontractor, then with its own products. In 1974 they moved to the Contes and they started to export their lighting to the United States. Over the years the company expanded and built a number of new workshops. The company still exists and they still produce lighting.
