Thanks to its 60 years of experience, RHD has earned a great reputation as precision spring supplier. A great number of companies in many industrial fields have benefited from its sound expertise in this field.
RHD Group evolves in this “sharp" domain since more than half a century. His president, Georges Huon, who founded the company in 1952, made it his job. The strategy of growth of the RHD group rests on a continuous investment policy, the deployment of innovative means of production, a better international market position, an orientation towards crenels with higher added value, in particular a car industry and cosmetic. The RHD group is now an inescapable reference regarding design of industrial springs today. In brief, a route betting on the excellence which contributed to raise our reputation so much on the French market as at the world level. We appear even among the reference actors, due to the fact as we are very fastidious in the steps which we undertake, the added value which we bring, the quality of the advice and supports were proposed to the customers.
Precision spring has a large variety of applications in everyday life and is used in many industrial sectors. From the arms to the car through electronics or cosmetics, it is very demanded for its various features. The first quality claimed by manufacturers in a precision spring is a significant elasticity and durability. However, there are specific characteristics requested by every branch of industry that the manufacturer must control.
RHD, a strong precision spring supplier with 70 years experience, acquired know-how and competence as large industrial groups entrust this company their most complex requirements. Close collaboration is taking place between technical and sales teams to complete each project. Once the client’s expectations are set in details, these two teams seek together the appropriate control process and technical constraints to be considered in order to manufacture requested spring.
This commitment to find the best solution for each precision spring order is fruitful, because productivity is improved and the quality fully meets the customer’s demands. RHD is not limited only to a dialogue between technicians and sales; it also owns a Research and Development division to which he devotes 4% of its turnover, i.e. about one million euro per year.

Among the very numerous items that necessitate one or several small springs to work efficiently, one can see bottles of perfume, robots and industrial machines, watches, lighters, shock absorbers. Although they are usually disregarded, springs play an essential role in a large number of ordinary objects. The multiple kinds of stresses to which springs are subjected combined to their small dimension require manufacturing processes to conform to the highest quality standards. Cutting-edge sectors, for example automotive, pharmaceutical or high-tech industries place a very high priority a high degree of importance on the springs that make up their products.
