In 1904 Pierre Desgouttes left the Berliet brand and decided to build cars under his own name. In 1905 he joined forces with Cyrille Cottin and the brand now received their final name.

In 1911, a branch was even established in Cambridge, England where the chassis imported from France were coachbuilt.

In 1922, the Type M was introduced, a small and very economical car that became the company's greatest success. As a late consequence of the world economic crisis, the company finally ended its activities in 1933.

The star in the center of the emblem is meant to represent beauty.
