HAVARD was created in Nantes in 1937, and immediately specialised in the production of copper alloy parts, meeting the needs for naval construction (propellers, transmission shaft bearing bushes) and the agri-food sector (machine-tools for the canning industry).
The company moved to Carquefou in 1963, and progressively started to manufacture finished goods, and expand its activity to aluminium processing in the year 2000 whilst remaining at a SME scale and maintaining its specific expertise.
Today, HAVARD provides extensive know-how to industrial companies seeking an experienced and reactive subcontractor.
