Born in 1900, the third Théodore
diversified the company’s activities, which he resolutely directed towards machinery.
It was on the shoulders of Théodore, at 28 the young head of the company and of his mother Marie-Thérèse, that the company now rested.
On 6 May 1930, the three elder brothers got married in the church at Andrezé. Théo, Joseph and Emile all worked together along with their uncles, who were still working.
Several workers gradually came to assist the family group, which included Auguste TOUBLANC. Victor BENAITEAU, Louis PASQUIER, René DURAND and Claude COLAISSEAU; and two other brothers, André and René, joined their elder brothers for a while.
Of the children of the third generation, only Gustave, born in 1907, decided not play a part in the workshops, preferring to move into the newly flourishing shoe industry. Gustave became highly involved in the management of matters of estate with his mother and was also of great help the day after his brother Joseph died in 1934, leaving two young children behind him.
From the fifties on, the sons of Théo, Joseph and Emile went on to increase the staff.
Their elder brother, the fourth Théodore, born in 1931, was to take up the torch.
He relocated the company outside the village in 1968, leaving the old buildings closed, along with their many memories.
