Near the end of the 1930s dealing with the German authorities became increasingly difficult and Van Roggen's successful move to use Adler technology became his downfall. While bartering Belgian textiles for Adler components he ran into serious debt with the Hauzeur-Gérard textile company, which took control over Imperia in 1940, leaving Van Roggen with only the Minerva part of his former empire.
