EXPERIENCE GOING BACK TO 1950
This family business was founded in 1950 based on the savoir faire of André RETHORE (1929-2009) who, after have worked as a blacksmith moved quickly into the manufacture of equipment for the building trades and especially that of adjustable metal props, of which he improved the operating principle.
As of 1960 André RETHORE increased the size of his structure and in 1972 the number of employees was already 70 and the area of the premises 4,000 m². Christian then succeeded his father and further accelerated the development of the company, opening sales outlets all over France and taking a great interest in foreign markets.
Today, RETOTUB is one of the French leaders in its field, specialising in shoring, safety systems and scaffolding. Its design office can satisfy the demands of today’s market by suitable innovations, and its production units work every day to produce high quality products.
RETOTUB works with the major construction and public works groups and smaller companies, while at the same time exporting to the 5 continents, selling or using equipment entirely designed and produced in its Vierzon factory.
