Today, their escalators are manufactured in China by their Chinese subsidiary CTE. Maintenance activities of their escalators for other countries have stopped since 2009 except China and Singapore.
CNIM started out in 1856 as Société Nouvelle des Forges et Chantiers de la Méditerranée (FCM), a shipbuilding company founded in La-Seyne-sur-Mer in France. In 1966, FCM was taken over by the Herlicq Group and was renamed to CNIM. Two years later, they began making escalators for the Paris metro networks.
In 1982, CNIM was contracted to supply escalators for the Hong Kong MTR network until 1998.
In 2009, their escalator maintenance for other countries was sold except China and Singapore. However, CNIM continues to make escalators.
