Pierre Elby, founder of Metrel, recently passed away. He formed Metrel in 1976 and allowed it to merge with Magneco in 1981 to become Magneco/Metrel. When Elby's French company, TRB, was sold and all of the other French interests in Metrel were sold, he remained as a shareholder of Magneco/Metrel. He continued to be an important and enthusiastic shareholder until his death.
