France's Viellard family: Hooked on steel

FRANCE 24 takes you to meet France's oldest industrial family, the Viellard. These masters of metal have been producing steel since 1796. But their story actually began during the reign of Louis XIV, when a certain Nicolas Viellard took over a foundry in the Vosges mountains. In the 19th century, the company started producing steel wire. In the 20th, it made its fortune from manufacturing fishing hooks. Today, it employs over 11,000 people around the world.
