This company was the starting point for the career of Edouard Empain. With the support of Arthur du Roy de Blicquy, he started in the firm at age 21 as a technical designer. At the age of 28, he was appointed a company director. The company manufactured rolling stock, bridges and various metal construction. The 1880 share has the facsimile signature of A. du Roy de Blicquy, in many ways the mentor of the young Empain.
