ACMA Scooters

Brief History of the Marque: ACMA
1951 to 1962

La société A.C.M.A. ( Ateliers de Construction de Motocycles et Accessoires ), an aeronautical firm, produced 123cc, 147cc & 173cc Vespas under license in Fourchambault, near Dijon, France. Manufacture commenced in 1951 and by 1954 they had produced 150 thousand machines. Production continued until 1962 when falling sales of scooters, and of the Vespa 400 microcars which they also produced, caused the closure of the small factory with devasting impact on Fourchambault. The company at its peak employed some 2800 people, and the population of the town was just a little over six thousand.
