    [eng] Abstract Created in 1878 by Iwasaki Yataro, Mitsubishi soon emerged as the first of the Zaibatsu. Present in every field (navigation, trade, import-export business, banking, chemical industry and heavy industry...) Mitsubishi sat up in France in 1924 as "Société Anonyme Française Mitsubishi". They first took an interest in aircraft s between 1924 and 1927, especially in the Dewoitine company. It was a failure, because of the bankruptcy of this last firm. From 1928 to 1932, the SAFM invested in import-export business, but the economic crisis forced them to reduce the capital by its half. The rationalisation of the 1932-1938 years then the War allowed them to subsist until its liquidation on July 24th 1944. [fre] Résumé Créé en 1878 par Iwasaki Yataro, Mitsubishi s'est rapidement imposé comme le premier des zaibatsu. Présent dans tous les domaines (navigation, commerce, import-export, banque, industrie chimique et industrie lourde, etc.), Mitsubishi s'est implanté en France, en 1924 sous la raison sociale de Société Anonyme Française Mitsubishi. Celle-ci s'est d'abord intéressé à l'aviation, entre 1924 et 1927, en particulier à la société Dewoitine. C'est un échec, dû à la faillite de cette dernière entreprise. De 1928 à 1932, la SAFM investit dans l'import -export, mais la crise économique l'oblige à réduire de moitié son capital en 1932. La rationalisation des années 1933-1938 puis la guerre lui permet de subsister jusqu'à sa liquidation le 24 juillet 1944.
