METRAVIB: one brand, one core business: noise and vibration analysis and treatment!

Metravib, a vibro-acoustic engineering company whose name stands for “MEsure et TRAitement des VIbrations et du Bruit”, was founded in 1969. The company focused on advances in acoustic engineering, which played an essential role in the development of silent submarines. One of the first Dynamic Mechanical Analyzers was developed in 1969 to characterize the viscoelastic properties of polymer materials used to reduce the noise generated by French Navy submarines.

Metravib quickly became a privileged partner of industry, bringing its expertise to a wide range of sectors including transport, energy, oil & gas, aerospace and defense. Metravib supports its customers in solving acoustic and vibration-related problems to improve the reliability of structures and associated components.

In the 1990s, Metravib took its first steps in the defense industry. The Délégation Générale pour l’Armement (DGA) and the Section Technique de l’Armée de Terre (STAT) commissioned Metravib to find a solution for gunshot detection, to help soldiers who come under fire without knowing precisely where the shots were coming from.

As an engineering company, Metravib has always had a sizable involvement in research. It’s our strength of conviction & innovation that has led us to develop high-performance concepts for all sectors of activity.
