Gobel has been manufacturing pastry moulds since 1887, and five generations later, is still the leader in the manufacture of a range of bakeware.
At the end of the nineteenth century, pâtisserie chefs were making cakes as elaborate as Bavarian castles. So, in 1887, a man from Alsace, Etienne Gobel, decided to open a factory to produce copper and tin moulds in Paris. Before long, the firm became a leader in its field.
By the end of the 1930s, the firm was selling over 2000 different products to the food industry and the home baker alike. The famous "petits beurres" (much loved French biscuits) were cooked exclusively on Gobel baking sheets.
