The First World War: 1914-1918

The First World War stopped the excellent start of ABC. Marcel Drory, the commercial director was called under the arms. Raw materials were no more available in enough quantities and slowly all activities died. The German army occupied the factory, transported all machines to Germany and young workers were obliged to work behind the lines for the German army. After signing peace, November the 11th 1918, most of the machines taken by the Germans were recovered, and from the United States new equipment was bought so that a new period of glory and export could start.
