Here are what I am able to say to you on the THEATE - LAMBIN and consorts:


- The first company seems to be created by Leon LAMBIN who was registered with the proof house of Liège of 1862 to 1877.


- Then of 1877 to 1886, the company LAMBIN - THEATE is created.


- Of 1886 to 1894 it becomes LAMBIN & THEATE Street Trappé, 5 in Liege.


- In 1894, the activity is taken again by THEATE T & Co, it perdure in the state until 1907.


- In 1907 it becomes THEATE Frères (Ernest and Adolphe) until 1950.


- In 1949 the company took again its activity the 31.12.1949 and was taken again by E.A. THEATE & Co (1950-1965)


- Finally in 1965, the last company yields its activity to RAICK Frères SPRL.
