The company was founded in 1748, when François Boch and his three sons began manufacturing ceramic tableware and decorative art objects. In 1836, Jean-François Boch merged with the successful stoneware manufacturer Nicolas Villeroy (a once competitor) to form what we know today, Villeroy & Boch.

Fast forward to the 1960s/70s and the company is producing some of the now iconic patterns across a range of tableware pieces, created by then designer Christine Reuter. Such patterns include Acapulco (1967), Izmir (1973) and Viking to name a few.
