The Ballot brothers, Edouard and Maurice, founded their company in 1905. Before the World War I they manufactured automobile and marine engines. The company was re-founded as Etablissements Ballot SA in 1910.

Edouard Ballot was well-known as a designer of reliable engines. He helped Ettore Bugatti in developing his first engines. After the World War I, the company entered motor racing with a straight-eight cylinder 4.9 litre car for the 1921 French Grand Prix. As well as racing engines, the company made a range of road engines which were fitted to their own production cars.

In 1931 the company was taken over by Hispano-Suiza. Ballot closed down in 1932.
