Manufacturing

A real Pétanque boule, is made like this…

 

1. Piece cut out of a steel bar:

2. Disk obtained by forging:

3. Half-shell obtained by forging:

4. Two half-shells assembled and welded:

... together with several inspections and checks, and real know-how

5. Boule weeded and turned on a lathe:

6. Then striated, marked, tempered (or quenched), polished and possibly chromium-plated:

We are well qualified to tell you about this, because we make more than

300,000 boules every month, and our boules are used by the greatest champions
