Maurice Chaise born in 1881 at Sant-Rémey (Yonne), set up his engine manufacturing company ‘Ets Chaise & Cie’ in 1921 (after previously being the head manufacturing/engineer at ‘The Rhone’ for 14 years 1907 to 1921 later called Gnome & Rhone). He worked with M. Erbet, chief engineer for the Chaise company.Les Etablissements Chaise & Cie  was established initially worked from numbers 36, 38 and 53  Rue Auguste Lançon in Paris.

He was a independent supplier of small cylinder capacity engines to various manufacturers within the boats, agriculture, motorcycles to aviation sectors. Notably he produced one of the first 500cm3 (along with a 250 and 350cc ACT range of engines) motor cycle engines in 1927, which was paraded at the October Paris motorcycle exhibition of that year to much acclaim. This range had Over head valves, and the 500cc had a alésage x course of 85 x 89. They made motorcycle engines predominately for Majestic and Dollar motorcycle brands, along with supplying engines to other manufacturers such as Energic.
