We know that lasting relationships can only be built on the basic of confidence, transparency and the daily efforts of each of our employees to provide our customers with tools and services of an excellent quality.

Production facilities

It is here that our products (threads, flutes and chamfers) are finished, making DC threading tools a success throughout the world. 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.
