An American engineer born in Connecticut goes to France in 1875 to set up an arms factory during the Franco-Prussian war. His name is Benjamin Hotchkiss, he later diversifies into making automobiles. Throughout her journey, his firm Société Anonyme des Anciens Etablissements Hotchkiss et Cie makes several acquisitions and gets in technical collaboration with several firms. Such firms include leading brands such as Delahaye, Jeep, etc.
One of the firms he purchases in 1956 is Société Nouvelle Brandt and in the same year, he launches a 5 tin model called PL50. This truck soon becomes the favourite for all small business establishments as it could move in small places. Most preferred by the firefighters, this model was also used by EDF (the French Electric distribution Co.).
This scale model is an exact rendition of the original truck.
