Founded in 1886, the main activity of Halm’s was renting tarpaulins to the Le Havre port authority.
After changing the company name , Halm’s became Chambrelan.
Chambrelan switched its activity to the production of ball bearing slides. The first slide produced was the RA5.
Mr Couppey bought the shares of the Chambrelan family business in 1965. Since then, a member of the Couppey family has managed Chambrelan SA. L’activité de location de bâches est totalement abandonnée. Le rail de guidage linéaire est conçu. Tarpaulin renting stopped totally. Linear rails were developed. Chambrelan SA then became the first French designer and producer of telescopic slides and linear rails.
Chambrelan began to export.
As the workshop was too narrow, Chambrelan set itself up in Le Havre’s old wire-drawing factory.
