our history

Over 30 years in the business of reconstructing machine tools and building special-purpose machines.


Founded by Louis BALEYDIER, Sud Ouest Système initially comprised a multidisciplinary team of 12 experts whose goal was to build a business that specialised in the refurbishment of large-scale metal removal tools.


Buildings were extended with the construction of an assembly workshop covering 300 m².

The workforce comprised 15 employees and turnover amounted to approximately €1.2 million.


Growing order volumes meant that the engineering department needed to be extended by 160 m².
