Xavier Pauchard (1880-1948) was a pioneer of galvanization in France. Shortly after World War 1, he was responsible for a flourishing manufacture of galvanized sheet-metal domestic items. In 1927 he registered the brand TOLIX and started manufacturing chairs, armchairs, stools and other metal furniture.
