Historically, Poissy is known for the Colloquy of Poissy - a religious (Catholic-Huguenot) conference which took place here on September 9, 1561. Its object was to reconcile France's Catholics and Protestants (Huguenots). However, the conference was fruitless as it broke up a month later (on October 9), after which both religious doctrines became irreconcilable.

Current-day Poissy is best-known for housing the defunct French manufacturers Automobiles Gregoire (producing cars and aircraft engines in the period 1902-1924), Matford (producing cars and trucks in the period 1934-1940), Ford SAF (subsidiary of Ford Motor Company, 1916-1954), Simca (1934-1970, founded by Fiat), and Talbot (London-based automobile manufacturer, 1903-1994) which all had factories in the town. Now in Poissy is functioning only the factory of Peugeot.
