Creil, France
A general view shows the engine room with old Rivierre pieces of machinery at the Rivierre plant, the last remaining nails factory in operation in France, in Creil July 3, 2014. The Rivierre plant was founded in 1888, and continues to use a technique of nails fabrication, which the founder developed, from coils of wire, where there is no metal waste. The 325 machines, built onsite date from 1892 - 1925, and produce some 2,800 different types of nails. They export fifty percent of their production and have a client base in luxury goods, aircraft, and industrial goods. The Rivierre firm has status of "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant" (Living Heritage Enterprise), a label to reward firms for the excellence of their traditional and industrial skills, and has a dossier underway for Historical Monument classification.
