History

In 1920, Mr Coste purchases a factory which produced hardened steels to use in corsets and crinolines. Then it is the reconversion into cold rolled strip for the industry, in particular the automotive industry.

The range is extended by the production of stainless steels which is now a major component of the business of the company. The company is technically diversifying over the years, improves and takes strategic decisions to be here today one of the key players in the market.
