Henri Brasier and Georges Richard produced Richard-Brasier cars but in 1905 Georges Richard was injured in an accident in the Par s-Madrid race and left the company to form UNIC.

After George's departure, Henri used the name of Brasier and was a renowned brand.

In 1926, the Chaigneau family, which had been a manufacturer of bicycles, bought the Brasier factory, which became Chaigneau Brasier.

In 1928, Georges Irat bought the company, and his son Michel renamed it to Irat-Michel. The financial crisis of 1929 forced discussions to join with with Delahaye, which acquired it in 1933.
