Our story

Design and craftsmanship, handmade in Belgium. Quincalux guarantees traditional craftsmanship with modern technological ingenuity.

Every part turned, milled, hot-pressed or cast in a sand bed is considered and detailed with care and passion for the craft. From the crank pin to the adjusting bolt; from the groove to the handle, it is always the result of a meticulous design and production process. Cutting-edge innovative technology helps polish the true craftsmanship, but the hand always comes first at Quincalux. The knowledge is at hand and passed on from generation to generation. Every new product created by designers for architects always passes through many hands. That's what it's always meant for.

Some history.

It all started in 1942, when Werner Desschans opened a small workshop in the Budastraat, in the centre of Kortrijk. His father, Georges, was a blacksmith and Werner inherited the trade. Shortly after the Second World War, the reconstruction of the country began, which resulted in a high demand for handrails, coat racks, door handles and pulls.

Under the leadership of his son, Carl Desschans, brass became the main material. During this period, the workshop expanded and Quincalux grew, with the result that Quincalux had to move to the Sint-Denijsstraat in Kortrijk. A national network of distributors was set up, regularly visited by representatives. A second move to the current location in Wevelgem became necessary.

Carl's son, Lorenzo, the current owner, joined the company in the mid-90s. Under his leadership, the international expansion of the brand Quincalux, “architectural hardware” was launched.
