From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Schneider-Creusot, or Schneider et Cie, was a historic French iron and steel-mill which became a major arms manufacturer. After World War II, it eventually evolved into Schneider Electric.

In 1836, Adolphe Schneider and his brother Eugène Schneider bought iron-ore mines and forges around Le Creusot (Saône-et-Loire). They developed a business dealing in steel, railways, armaments, and shipbuilding.[1]

The Creusot steam hammer was built in 1877.

Somua, a subsidiary located near Paris, made machinery and vehicles, including the SOMUA S35 tank.
