THE EXPERIENCE OF A MANUFACTURER

HUCHEZ winches are designed and manufactured to respond to all lifting or traction problems in all contexts and all sectors (industry, aeronautical industry, construction, maritime and river transport, show-business industry…).
HUCHEZ also designs and manufactures a large range of material for other kinds of applications: lifting/pulling loads (gantry cranes, jib cranes, cabestans…) or lifting personnel (SECURITREUIL...).
INNOVATION AND R&D IN THE DNA OF THE BUSINESS
Its R&D ofﬁce relies on the expertise of its engineers, external consultants and specialized researchers to answer to customer requests in lifting or pulling/towing, following the rules and regulations in force.
This department consisting of a multidisciplinary team of 5 people, is devoted to developing new products and new ranges of winches. They are all fitted out with new technologies (electronics, composite materials) and the latest tools (3D, ergonomics and quick prototyping).
