This famous firm was founded in 1919 by Gabriel Voisin who was already known at the time as an aircraft manufacturer. The extraordinary constructor did not hesitate to produce amazing models that no other would have dared to present. Unfortunately, the passion of Gabriel Voisin for extraordinary prototypes did not favour prosperity of his business on a commercial level. In 1937, he was forced to sell the plant in Issy-les-Moulineaux. The new model developed under new managment is much more coventional but still struggles to find keen buyers. The company went bankrupt this year.
