ESTABLISHMENT OF THE SOCHAUX PLANT
In 1929, the new Sochaux plant grouped together all Automobiles Peugeot manufacturing and it became the largest industrial site in France.
In 2012, it celebrated its centennial, making it the oldest car manufacturing plant still in activity in the world today.
THE BIRTH OF PSA
PSA (Peugeot Société Anonyme) was founded to become a holding of the automotive group of the same name, which today controls all of the PEUGEOT Group’s companies.
In 1976, it became PSA PEUGEOT Citroën through the merger of Citroën S.A. and PEUGEOT S.A.
PSA Peugeot Citroën then became the PSA Group in 2016 and today symbolises the dynamism of its three strong car brands – PEUGEOT, Citroën and DS – as well as all other current and future Group activities.
CREATION OF L'AVENTURE PEUGEOT
Pierre Peugeot founded ©L’Aventure PEUGEOT, an association under the law of 1901, whose mission was to preserve the heritage of PEUGEOT brands.
The Aventure PEUGEOT Museum in Sochaux has welcomed between 50,000 and 60,000 visitors each year since its opening in 1988.
In 2015, L’Aventure PEUGEOT became ©L’Aventure PEUGEOT Citroën DS and grouped together all collections of the PSA Group brands.
