Born in 1931, Théodore MORILLON
, the founders’ great-grandson, was to industrialize the company completely.
After building offices and a workshop on the Route du May, Théo, a machinery enthusiast and a talented designer, distinguished himself by creating and rationalizing the classic “MORILLON” handling equipment: auger screw, under-pipe, bucket elevator, conveyors and so on.
That was the time of the agricultural shows, where customers were attracted and hopefully persuaded to buy turnkey grain storage equipment. This activity required a great deal of labour, and the company rapidly doubled its workforce to well over the forty employees used in the late 70's.
The development of animal feed, mainly in western France, was such that the company enlarged its range to attract the major cooperative customers. This new activity found Théo and his team handling products (soy-bean cakes, corn gluten feed, manioc, etc.) that were harder to store and convey than cereals.
The time when MORILLON dealt with mills and agricultural machinery had seen some major changes. Competition and industrialization meant that the company had to play a new role.
Realizing this, and banking on innovation, Théo lost no time in assuming this new role.
