In 1875 Lucien Regad created the Etablissements REGAD in Saint-Claude. The company manufactured pipes primarily for the German and Swiss markets.
This hand drawn and colored catalog from REGAD dates back to 1893 and contains over 800 models.
In 1912 Arthur Berrod takes over the business which becomes known as A.BERROD-REGAD.
In 1951 Arthur's sons Jean and Claude acquire BUTZ CHOQUIN and
in 1977 Jean-Paul and Jacques Berrod take over at the helm.
The company is still known today as BUTZ CHOQUIN under the leadership of Denis Blanc.
