La cuisine on land ond sea

Renowned for our unrivalled expertise, we’re proud to design and produce high-performance, durable gas and electric planchas right here, in our workshops in Niort, France.

Our history

In 1909, Arthur Haineaux started the Arthur Haineaux & Cie foundry in Revin, France. It produced cast iron cookers and stoves.
In 1916, during the war, the factory was installed in Niort, in Deux-Sèvres, when Arthur Haineaux bought back a foundry and gave it an immediate boost.

The ENO brand was registered in 1927 and the company started growing rapidly thanks to its exports.
The company has been helmed by several generations of Haineaux, followed by various buyers. Laurent Colas and Antoine Thomas have been in charge since 2003.

Today, ENO designs and makes planchas for outdoor use and cooking appliances for recreational boats.

A world leader in the nautical industry since 2006, ENO now strives to be the leading producer of high-end enamelled cast iron planchas.
