The brothers Maurice and Georges Sizaire and their partner Louis Naudin founded the company Sizaire Freres et Naudin in Puteaux, near Paris, France in 1903. The first cars sold under the make Sizaire-Naudin and in 1905, they offered a light car using an engine of its own design.

The blue and red flag was the crest of the duke d'Uzes who was the financier of this company, this emblem was used from 1906 on.

Unique gearbox by means of an integral 3 speed differential - 3 straight cut pinions brought to bear in turn on a single large straight cut crown wheel. Enjoyed great success in early voiturette races with rules which limited cylinder bore (but did not specify stroke length).

By 1911 the single cylinder format was outmoded, and an attempt to fit 4 cylinder engines did not result in significantly increased sales.

In 1912 the Sizaire brothers left the company and after the death of Louis Naudin the company was renamed in "Societé Anonyme des Nouveaux Etablissements Sizaire & Naudin".
