Pascale SOL-BRUCHON, Jean BRUCHON’s daughter, takes over the management of the ROUSSELON Company. She modernizes the production (polishing robots, digitally controlled grinding machines …). She brings creativity by working with internationally well-known  designers  such as Philippe Costard, Jean-Pierre Vitrac (France) or Andrew Stokes (UK). In a world previously dominated by men, Pascale progressively brings a feminine touch to design, manufacturing and sales.
