Hutchinson Defense & Security Division
: 13 January, 2009  (Application Story)
Hutchinson has more than 80 years' experience in the runflat tyre industry since vehicles for the French Army were first equipped with its devices in 1925.
Since those times Hutchinson has steadily built upon its experience in this industry to design and develop innovative product solutions that suit the ever-changing requirements of military operations regardless of terrain.

Added to its well-established range of runflat and bead-lock devices, Hutchinson now manufactures a new aluminium military wheel which gives an impressive 50% reduction in weight. Hutchinson supplies a complete assembly including wheel, tyre and runflat device.

Hutchinson's wheel and tyre safety systems have proved themselves time and again in war zones and are specified by most major military vehicle producers around the globe, who include them as standard equipment. Hutchinson Defense & Security Division, headquartered at Persan, France, is certified to ISO 9001 (1994) and AQAP 110 (1995).
