Thanks to more than 70 years’ experience, RHD is recognized as a reference steel spring manufacturer. It supplies or produces custom steel springs, mainly for automotive, cosmetic and medical industries.
RHD is one of the European and world leaders of the manufacturing of all kind of springs and of the steel spring manufacturers. The history of the company begins of 1952, it was not at the time of a simple family company of about fifteen employees. Then Serge Huon, the son of the founder went in partnership with his director José Dubois in 1989, a collaboration which allowed to give a new start to the company, making of RHD one of the main suppliers of high-technology industries as the car, cosmetic or air-sea industry.
The growth strategy finalized by the partners allies the efficiency of the continuous investment to the use of modern production tools and to the control computerized of all the process. The support of the customers in the design of the products which exactly meet their needs, the international opening in expanding sectors, the know-how and the experience of successful teams allowed us to place us among the best in the field of the manufacturing of springs.
A steel spring manufacturer must design and implement a strong spring able to absorb mechanical energy or generate movement. The choice of using steel for its production results from the high elasticity of this material, its resistance to corrosion and its good endurance in the face of ongoing stress.
The manufacturer is responsible for finding the best combinations to produce a solid and at the same time quite elastic steel spring, corresponding to the clients’ requirements. In most cases, technical teams must perform extensive research and adjust its production and machines for each order.
As a steel spring manufacturer, RHD actively seeks to adapt its products to the customer demand. The dialogue before any project is a particularity of RHD policy. Its technical and business teams work together to find answers to comply with the most demanding marketing requirements while respecting the specifications set and within the established budget line. This results in significant gains of performance.
RHD also focuses on fully computer-managed production. Real-time monitoring of the progress of each project becomes therefore possible, to be able to reach the deadline set. Similarly, RHD owns powerful machines designed to provide quality products, meet the highest demands and significantly reduce time and costs.
On the very long list of goods that cannot function correctly without one or several small springs, one can find shock absorbers, lighters, bottles of perfume, robots, but also industrial machines, watches. Springs play an essential but generally neglected role in a very large amount of objects for everyday use. Because of exposure to multiple kinds of stresses and small dimension, springs manufacturing processes must comply with the highest quality standards. For leading-edge fields, such as pharmaceutical, automotive, high-tech industries, and other cutting-edge fields, it is essential to use springs of the highest possible quality in their products.
