* 80 quintals of wheat can be treated there daily. Cylinder machines, screeners and the plansichters are driven by a waterwheel developing 20 horsepower and a 40 HP steam engine The warehouses and stores have a capacity of 1200 quintals of wheat and flour 150 q. The workshop is extended on the South side in the 1920s. Milling capacity is still growing, and in 1926, 130 quintals of wheat may will be processed in a day. A diesel engine is installed in 1933
* It was probably at this time that buildings are considerably expanded from the South and west sides. In the 1960s, the company is headed by Mr. Vigier, which is moving towards the production of animal feed. It seems that activity stops around 1970, and since then, buildings are housing and warehouse.
