Formed in 1909 by Gabriel Borel, Etablissements Borel was an early constructor of floatplanes. One of the first aircraft to serve with the British Navy was a Borel monoplane, purchased in 1912, and at least eight were in service with the Naval Wing before the beginning of the First World War. A high performance two-seat fighter was built to the design of M. Boccacion, but too late for wartime service. Known subsequently as Societe Generale des Constructions Industrielles et Mecaniques.
