Mottez is located in Erquinghem-Lys, 15 km from Lille, in the heart of Europe, which allows them to deliver products using as little energy as possible, and therefore as little CO2 as possible. The company is about 200 km from Paris, London, Amsterdam, Brussels and Cologne and 90% of their products are made of steel, the most recyclable material in the world because it is easily recovered. 98% of the scrap metal is recovered in France.

All their products are eco-designed by our design office, minimizing the scrap of steel tubes as much as possible.

Mottez’s products are often assembled in a playful way, without tools. They sort and recover all the waste: steel, paper, cardboard, plastic, wood, waste water to valorize them as much as possible.

The company also attaches great importance to biodiversity, which is why they practice late mowing on all their green spaces, which encourages the development of refuge areas for animals and pollinating insects.

Mottez is proud to have put them in place in the factory to preserve the planet. The factory has 6 hives and they have set up an eco-pasture thanks to their two highlander cows and two alpacas.
