“In the heart of the Ardennes woodland,
wood is our passion.”

Baret - rails

Etablissements Baret draws on decades of experience and in-depth knowledge of timber, railways and their components.

The company, which was founded in Haybes in 1949, is located in the heart of the Ardennes forest. This forest is made up mainly of oak, a species that combines the mechanical characteristics that are best suited to Baret’s core business: railway sleepers and crossing sleepers.

Baret is constantly investing to maintain its technical capabilities at the highest level.


With our teams of specialists, combined with our most modern production resources, we can produce all types of parts with exceptional precision. Whatever your requirement or demand, we will be able to provide a solution.


Baret has computer-controlled autoclaves to treat wood. We can adapt impregnation settings to match the wood to be treated and the retention requirements imposed by our customers and standards.


Our storage area for natural drying and our artificial drying cells mean we have raw material at our disposal and can respond to any urgent request.

A team of experts and a rigorous process

Each part undergoes a series of meticulous inspections, thanks to a team of experts and a rigorous process, guaranteed by ISO 9001 certification and the EN 13145 standard, which is specific to wood sleepers.
