Why choose Bodet Time

Leader in time displays and bell systems

For more than 40 years, Bodet Time has been designing analogue clocks, digital clocks, and station clocks in France. Multiple styles of clocks are installed in schools, healthcare institutions, industrial environments, stations, and airports. Bodet Time is also the specialist for speakers and microphones. Bodet Time equips schools in France and abroad with bell systems to broadcast lockdown alerts in the event of major incidents. Their audio systems can also play a bell, melody or voice message to set a pattern for a school day or inform factory workers.
