Alain Froment contact details

Post by Nick » Thu Feb 16, 2012 8:55 am

Hi.

Years ago my father sent his pipes off to Alain for repair but due to financial hardship could never afford to get them back.
I realise that Alain passed away some years ago now but does anyone have any way of contacting a member of his family.
I was told that family members had carried on aspects of his business but dont know if this is true or not.
The phone numbers I have (00353) 6466 41026 and (00353)64 41026 no longer work.

I am very keen to get these pipes back for my father as they are a beautiful set made by Alain himself.

Please, if anyone can help e mail me on nickhodge91210@hotmail.com

Thanks.

The numbers you tried are Irish numbers and Alain had moved back to france before he died.I dont know his name but someone took over Alains workshop so he may be able to help,otherwise contact NPU and they should be able to give contact details. Overall I think the time elapsed could cause probelms

Thanks Liam.

Could anyone give me a name, number or address of the guy who took over Alain's worshop?
