The Essential
The town's fast expansion went hand in hand with the intensive mining of the Blanzy coal basin and other industries. In the wake of the industrial crisis of the 1980s, which bankrupted Creusot-Loire, an economic rethink began, bringing about a new vocation in the electronic and telecommunications sectors. Today, Montceau makes up Le Creusot-Montceau "urban community" with Le Creusot and has found new openings, notably in the field of technical tourism.
