Geocache Description:

Cette courte geocache Multi est sur l'ancien site de la Cartoucherie d'Issy-Les-Moulineaux.
This short Multi geocache is located on the former ammunitions factory at Issy-Les-Moulineaux.

La Cartoucherie

FR: La Société Française de Munitions fabriquait des amorces, des cartouches de chasse et des munitions de guerre.
Elle fut créée par Joseph-Marin Gévelot (l'inventeur de l'amorce au fulminate de mercure) en 1823 à Paris, et elle déménage rapidement aux Moulineaux.
En 1867, 500 salariés travaillent à la société Gévelot. Le site compte alors 50 bâtiments répartis sur 7 hectares. En 1930, l'entreprise est à son apogée avec 3000 employés.
Un grand incendie ravage l'usine le 11 juillet 1973. La société ne s'en remettra jamais et dépose le bilan en janvier 1980.
Le site a été dépollué en 1993. On y trouve maintenant des immeubles et le Parc de la Résistance.
