Les Ateliers d'Aviation Liore et Olivier
Built designs by some 15 early aviators including Morane-Saulnier biplanes (over 2,000 built) and Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter biplanes (nearly 3,000 built); first major original design under LeO designation was LeO 4 reconnaissance biplane, September 1916. Post WWI built many sea and land planes, including bombers, fighters, and passenger airliners. Plants were nationalized in the 1930s.
Plants nationalized appear to include Argenteuil, Clichy, Lavallois, Amberieu, and seaplane works at Rochefort. Those which existed prior to 1917 need to be identified.
