The "Etablissements Vermorel" started car production in 1900. The first car, with a two-cylinder 10hp engine won a Gold medal at the exposition in Lyon. Serial production was established in 1908 / 1909. The first Vermorel car with an oval brass radiator emblem was seen in 1910. Car production ceased in 1930. In thirty years 7,800 cars were built.

The first badge featured a drawing of the car itself, for the last Vermorel car, (the type AD) the emblem was modernized, now showing the signature of the founder, Victor Vermorel. Only few cars were built making it extremely rear.

Vermorel was, together with Berliet, LaBuire and Rochet-Schneider, one of the important marques from that region.
