A closer look at Le Creusot
In 1836, the Schneider brothers launched Le Creusot steel in Saône-et-Loire. At the time, as the industrial revolution was underway and the train business was developing, they began producing locomotives and railway tracks. This was the start of an empire, which is today centred around electricity. In the former Schneider family château, we can now visit the Musée de l’Homme et de l’Industrie.
