PROTEOR originates in Burgundy, France. In the small city of Seurre, in 1913, three craftsmen join together and set up a workshop to provide forged and wooden components to prosthetists and orthotists. The banks of the nearby Saône River provide all the needed willow wood. During World War I, the Clarke firm takes over the shop and rationalizes the production to meet the needs of the conflict's amputees.

After several changes of direction, in 1949 the company changes its name to PROTEOR, in reference to PROsthetics and ORthopaedics. At the instigation of Michel PIERRON's grandfather, the current Chairman and CEO of the PROTEOR group, PROTEOR becomes the family business it still remains nowadays.

Today, PROTEOR employs more than 500 professionals worldwide and is the main orthopaedics company in France for fitting patients. The company has established itself as a major manufacturer and supplier of O&P components all around the world.

For fitting more than 20,000 patients per year, PROTEOR relies on a network of more than 40 branches in the main French cities. It also has fitting subsidiaries in Luxembourg, Czech Republic and Marocco, plus its own supply structures in China, Czech Republic and Northern America.

The company encourages its clients and partners to give feedback about its products, as this is the best way to adapt to the standards of the industry and fulfill patients' needs.
