Since 1934, Paulstra develops leading-edge expertise in the vibro-acoustic field. The adventure started in aviation, when founder Jean-Félix Paulsen devised suspension Dynaflex to address the delicate problem of the transmission of vibrations to aircraft wings.
The first manufacture has been open at Châteaudun in 1937 then followed at Segré in 1961. Hutchinson, which is a manufacturer of natural rubber, bought in 1974, the Paulstra society. On this same year, TOTAL took majority shareholding in the Hutchinson's group.
In 1994, Paulstra's acquired Vibrachoc, which is a specialized business on metallic suspension.
