A history of guaranteeing expertise and reliability

In 1930 René Sauzède founded REXO, a company specialized in the manufacture of lawn mowers and chainsaws. His son Pierre took over in 1947 and gradually diversified the company, even to producing go-karts fitted with Rexo chainsaw engines in the early 60’s. They won numerous races throughout France.
In 1960, he also took control of Rouyer, a company specializing in hand tools

In 2001, REXO created RC PRO of which the activities included the manufacture and marketing of cutting chains and hand tools. It was Pierre Sauzède’s son-in-law, Jean-Paul Vinet, who took on its management.

On March 23, 2018, Philippe Geeraert took over RC PRO and decided to continue the company’s activities to develop its range.

In July 2019, the company recovered its historical name of REXO.
