Exacompta is a French company with roots in the professional world and connections to Clairefontaine, Rhodia, G. Lalo, and more. Founded in 1928 by Charles Nusse, great-grandson of Clairefontaine founder Jean-Baptiste Bichelberger, the company got its start mass manufacturing high quality ledgers for accounting firms in Paris.
Famous Roots & Branches
The brand quickly became a popular choice due to their high quality paper and sturdy bindings (let’s face it – with direct roots from Clairefontaine, Exacompta was always destined to use the best paper). The Exacompta company name was inspired from a combination of the French words comptabilité and exacte, which mean accounting and exact, respectively.
Those two values are represented clear as day in all their fine products, and took hold in their early days. Their original books were bound with durable and smooth paper and became synonymous with excellence. Nusse grew his personal company, Ets Charles Nusse, with Exacompta and in 1950 Clairefontaine was added to the group. Today, Exacompta is still run by the Nusse family, and they are now part of a larger group of several European paper manufacturing companies, including Rhodia and G. Lalo.
Working by the French philosophy “savoir vivre,” meaning knowledge of good life, Exacompta set out with an objective to make even the simplest tools well-designed and a pleasure to use. Through this mindset, Exacompta has carved a unique niche between paper and professional by manufacturing notebooks, datebooks, and filing accessories.
