Poirier built voiturette a volant in the 1920s, and Ydral-powered motor tricycles during the 1940s and 1950s in a variety of configurations, some with electric start.

The Poirier Manulette was available with a 47cc engine.
The company still exists under the name Invacare, building wheelchairs and medical beds and as of 2014 employs 350 people.
