When the Peugeot name is heard, everyone first thinks of cars. However, the history of the French company took a completely different path to world conquest. The history of the Peugeot company began with Jean-Pierre Peugeot, who entered the textile industry. As a result of his work, he left his sons Jean-Pierre and Jean-Frédéric Peugeot with a fabric dyeing workshop, an oil factory and a mill. Around 1810, the two boys converted the mill near Montbéliard and set out to produce rolled steel. The Peugeot Brothers (Peugeot Fréres) initially made springs, saw blades, hand tools, as well as coffee grinders and women’s skirt tires. Steel mill products were so popular that they were used in many parts of France. Good quality and impeccably functioning goods have become a popular tool in cafes and restaurants. In 1885, a turning point came in the company’s profile: the automotive industry appeared. Over the years, cars have become the most important products of the company. However, the success of mill products is demonstrated by the fact that they have been manufactured and marketed around the world for more than a century. Be part of the Peugeot experience!
