S.A. des Chaudronneries Pierrou


This factory named ‘Chaudronneries Pierrou’ was a welding work. It made sheet boilers and sheet metal containers. It was abandoned after almost 100 years.

In 1903 ‘Société Anonyme des Chaudronneries Pierrou’ opens its doors. At its peak, more than 1.500 people worked there. When it closed in 2001, there were only 50 employees left. The site was transformed into an industrial park for small and medium enterprises.

Several halls were already demolished in the early 2000s. But the oldest building is still left there today. Inside we found many blue prints stored in the bureaus. The workshop had many instruments inside. I took these photos of this abandoned factory in 2016.
