Founded in 1954 by Robert RABAS in Saint-Nazaire, the small precision engineering company, specialized in lathe work (mechanical parts, sub-assemblies etc.) was then producing parts for the shipbuilding industry.

The Chantiers de l’Atlantique yard in Saint Nazaire became its main customer.

The 70's marked a turning point in the company's development: the micro-business became an SME, with around twenty employees, and Robert's son Jean-Pierre joined the company. The company started to develop and its milling activity for the aeronautical industry began.

Jean-Pierre RABAS took over management of the company in 1992.
