In addition to its production capacity, the Malleray site concentrates the research and development activities and the administrative follow-up for the different companies of the DC Group.



The Bévilard production site is equipped with machines for the production of blanks used for the production of finished products in Malleray. This site also houses the “electro-erosion” division for the production of lubrication holes for internal coolant adapted to the requirements of our customers.
