In 1952, a body of building housing offices and a manufacturing workshop was built. A new production plant was built in 1962 and in 1964 another building is built. The last workshop of manufacturing, and the largest (2000 m²), was built in 1969 below the other structures, at the same time as a station of pumping the Miosson water and a sewage. The wigs are made manually with natural hair from primarily China (60%), but Italy, India, the Korea and the Portugal: they are mainly intended for export, with 85% of sales in the United States. In the 1970s began the decline of the company: the manual manufacture is no longer profitable, and mechanical manufacture has been challenged by American products. In 1974, the plant is sold at the SAT (society of Applications telephone) who buys little bit across buildings and turns them into electronic plant (head of infra-red guided missile) for national defence.In 1957: 50 workers, in 1964: 175 workers and 5 workers
