  • Conference In the aftermath of the Armistice, and in the years that followed, until 1924, the Sainte-Marguerite factory returned to its traditional productions and experienced brutal variations in its workforce, as well as a drop in production. In 1922, with the start of aluminum work and the production of semi-finished products, the plant found a revival of activity from 1926. Moreover, in the aftermath of the Great War, the shortage of manpower the French industry suffers once again, forces the factory management to recruit foreign labor. We are moving from temporary immigration to permanent immigration. Another particularity, this immigration is essentially of European origin.
