LA STEPHANOISE

About us

From the beginning, because of its proximity to Saint-Etienne’s coal mines, LA STEPHANOISE has been involved in mining equipment, at first specialising in well equipment and manufacturing belt conveyors.

Thereafter, thanks to the close cooperation between the operators and its design office, LA STEPHANOISE has actively developed equipment intended for underground work in France and in the world.
Hence, the range of products has gradually expanded as besides belt conveyors, the range now includes apron feeders, breakers, shearing machines, etc.…

LA STEPHANOISE embodies and reflects more than one century of experience originally acquired equipping the oldest French coal fields, and then other mining areas but also in its others activities.

Today, LA STEPHANOISE develops, manufactures and installs production units for the industry worldwide.
