François Desvoys set up as a farrier in Landivy, which would become the cradle of the company. His son, Eugène Romain, then his grandson, Eugène Vital, both followed in his footsteps.
His great-grandson, Alfred, complemented his trade as a farrier by developing tillage tools (such as animal-drawn harrows) and established himself permanently at the current site.
The 1st 3-point bucket was manufactured, the start of a long list of farmyard equipment, that would build the reputation of DESVOYS for its sturdy and functional tools. The Desvoys company was officially created.
The 1st grass and silage distribution implements were then developed.
The 1st shredder was created, prefiguring a major development.
The growth of the family business intensified with the purchase of a site in Ernée for the production of a new roadside shredder (the DMF), which was a great success.
The head office in Landivy was expanded, starting with the assembly unit and the installation of a paint line, combining energy efficiency and approval by the relevant environmental authorities.
The Access By Desvoys brand was created for less frequently used products.
Desvoys then expand into Germany and set up a subsidiary: Desvoys Gmbh.
The production facilities were modernised with new premises.
Several robots were installed to improve performance in terms of quality, productivity and working conditions.
