Historical annecdote
For more than a century the Japy family has created an industrial empire of watchmaking and hardware, in the territory of Belfort. Founded at the end of the 18th century, Japy Frères was the second largest French company, in terms of capital, during the Second Empire.
Nearly 5,000 workers worked in Japy factories at the end of the 19th century.
