The Atelier de Construction RoannE (ARE) factory was built during the First World War to the plans of André Citroën for the production of artillery shells. It is located in the town of Roanne in the Massif Central, almost mid-way between the cities of Lyon and Saint Etienne. From 1952 the AMX-13 was produced at ARE but in 1964 production was moved to Creusot-Loire at Chalon-sur-Saône, as ARE moved to assembly of the AMX 30 MBT, and the numbers produced declined significantly. ARE manufactured 1900 vehicles of the AMX-13 series.
