UGIVIS’ business and manufacturing headquarters are located in the industrial area of Belley, in the department of Ain within the Region of Rhone-Alpes, France.
Belley, historical and religious capital, was one of the most famous villages of the Roman Empire, thanks to its strategic position: on the crossroad connecting Lyon to Genève. The etymology of Belley is probably liked to the Goddess Bellone, a Roman goddess of war, symbolized by a wolf, now symbol of the city, symbol that can be found on many houses (don’t miss the bronze wolf located in Grande Rue, carved by Colette Sonzogni). The city of Belley, like the whole province of Bugey, has been conquered by different countries. In 1077 the Bugey province was ceded by the Holy Roman Church to the Savoy Family, and finally ceded to France in 1601 with the Treaty of Lyon. The administration of Belley was depending from the Province of Bourgogne.
Catholic Diocese since the 6th century, Belley welcomed many religious orders, these left their mark in the history and architecture of the city. Today Belley is a “sous-prefecture”, the main city of the canton and counts almost 10,000 inhabitants.
