In 1836, the Marquis de Boissy built a forge fed by the charcoal and the iron of the mines near the mill. In 1848, the Forges and Fonderies de Rosières were taken over by the Marquis de Vogüe to make rails, heavy building and public works parts.
It was in 1869 that the true birth of the Rosières of today is situated. That year, Jules Roussel, Deputy, Master of Forges, acquired Rosieres. He modernised the foundry and launched new cast iron products.
On the death of Jules Roussel, a joint-stock company was created by his heirs and engineers. In 1896 there were 600 workers in the developing city.
In 1909, Henri Magdelénat develops the means of production, reorganizes and expands the foundry, the assembly, the maintenance and the shipping shop.
