Brierre Trimoteurs and Quadris

239 Boulevard Pereire, Paris
Established in 1898, E.J. Brierre, Perrenoud and Gansewinkel built trimoteurs, quatris and automobiles with petrol engines. In 1901 Brierre took over the distribution of the Cottereau brand for the greater Paris area, and built cars of that name under licence. Automobile production ended in 1903.
There is doubt about the production of tricycles, with some sources indicating that only 4-wheelers were built.
