Mr. Zwallen and Mr. Chretin joined forces, forming the company ZC (ZedCe).
Over a 22-year period, Zedce, located in the Arve valley, the home of the turning industry, produced some 500 turning machines. In 1968, the company stopped selling its machines and turned towards the production manufacturing industry.
