DIVERSIFICATION OF PEUGEOT'S ACTIVITIES

Since the very beginning, PEUGEOT has diversified its production, yet has always remained industrially consistent.
Our strategy has constantly been in tune with the needs of our customers and the environment.

1824

Although licence rights have now been transferred, PEUGEOT coffee grinders are still made with the original mechanism.

1852

Steel crinolines manufactured
