We popped into the Luminarc shop which is in Arques. It is the leading manufacturer of crystal and glassware in the world. Arc International was established in 1825 in the village of Arques in northernFrance by Alexander des Lyons de Noircarm, who began production by manufacturing glass storage containers known as “dame-jeanne” (demijohns in English), which were popular at that time.

Corporate – Arc International

Arc International employs 15, 000 people worldwide including 9000 in France. The group, whose head office is located in Arques, in the French Pas-de-Calais region, achieved a turnover of 1.5 billion Euros in 2007. Armed with its know how in glassware, it developed globally and diversified its activities through the integration of materials other than glass.
