High-precision bar turning

Ever since it was founded in 1988, Tavadec’s development strategy has been masterminded by its founder, Jacques-Ali Monnin. In 1998 he was joined by his sons, Cédric and Didier, who have worked alongside him throughout the growth and expansion of the company. The young management team and the experience of their elders have aligned behind a common vision, namely the need for ongoing investments in research and the consolidation of our know-how and services.

Tavadec is still owned today by the founding family who knows, better than anyone else, the workings and specifics of the company and its production.
