100 years of history on the water, earth and air The company Zodiac Pool Care Europe is part of the global Zodiac Group. The Zodiac Saga: passions, the only effort Developed water - since the company's founding in 1896, the Zodiac has innovative and powerful technologies, around the elements of air and - in later years. The pioneering idea, market intuition and the constant quest for improvement were the themes that have shaped the company and have made it what it is today. Although the rise of the Zodiac Group in large part to the deployment of personnel and economic and social conditions is attributed to the original offense but sprang to the will of its founder, Maurice Mallet. This young man who wanted to become a painter, discovered during a balloon flight at Issy-les-Moulineaux, 1879 groundbreaking connections between air, gas, heat, and thermal buoyancy. From then on he was fascinated by the subject, and devoted the rest of his life to the Ballonbau. Consequently, he founded several years after its discovery, together with the pilot Paul Jovis, the company "Union Aéronautique de France". It started with the Aeronautical Engineering The Zodiac saga began at the end of the 19th Century in Paris, Maurice Mallet as the company "Mallet, Melandri and Pitray" founded. The company specialized in the development and construction of hot air balloons and airships. The balloons were happy and often used as part of fairs, exhibitions and in the vicinity of tourist resorts and received so much attention. This paid off final at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900 from where the visitors the hot air balloons, including the meteorological instruments and other technical equipment admired. Henceforth, Maurice Mallet was with his company as one of the world's two major balloon manufacturer. With this success behind the Mallet also turned increasingly to large commercial companies and offered there in a completely innovative advertising medium: the airship. Mallet drove the Ballonbau moving forward and named the company in 1909 in order to "Société Zodiac, anciens établissements Aéronautiques Maurice Mallet" - the name Zodiac was born. This coincided with the construction of the first Zodiac airship, the "Zodiac I". The name Zodiac headed mallet from the word "signs of Zodiac," from the English word for the word "zodiac", a name that clearly closely with the sky and dirigibles is thus connected. The choice of an English brand name was no accident, but it corresponds perfectly with the trend and style of this era. Observation balloons, parachutes, airships ... The outbreak of World War I temporarily slows the growth and diversification of the company that makes its production at this time solely in the service of military aviation material. Even after the death of Maurice Mallet in 1926, the passion remains the driving force behind the company, which now wants to tap into other areas. Thus, in 1934 the famous two-man dinghy launched, the Zodiac brand contributes to a considerable reputation in this new division. Since then further developed Zodiac resistant, many innovative and successful products are introduced, many of them protected by patents.
