MORILLON FRANCE EXPERIENCE SINCE 1865 IN HANDLING OF BULK PRODUCTS
Théodore MORILLON, Carpenter and Millwheel Maker, (1837-1925) Théodore was born on 8 September 1837 in La Chapelle du Genêt, the last-born in a family of 11 children. On 23 January 1865, in Andrezé, he married Angélique CHUPIN, a dressmaker, and created his own company. He was 28 years old.
By trade he was a carpenter and bladed wheel maker, that is to say he designed and constructed mill mechanisms, at that time made almost exclusively of wood. The first workshop was situated in the village itself, in a building he had bought from his wife’s family. Two friends joined him in this enterprise: Jean BRETAUD, a family friend and experienced carpenter; and Théophile COLAISSEAU, a first cousin of Angélique’s. On 1 October 1876, the first written contract was signed, a copy of which still exists, This was for a 14-metre high windmill, situated in the place known as “Les Comboîtures” in Beaupréau and which belonged to the BLANCHARD family. Théodore and Angélique had 8 children; the eldest was also called Théodore. On the death of Angélique in 1882, Théodore remained alone with his children, continuing to work at his trade. He remarried on 7 February 1888, to Jeanne HUCHON, a native of La Chapelle du Genêt. She gave him 3 other children. Starting with nothing, Théodore went on to increase the fortunes of his company up until his death in 1925, at the age of 88. He died with the satisfaction of having made MORILLON a renowned and respected name in the trade. Founded in 1865, MORILLON SAS has unique experience in the handling of bulk products.
