Our History

It was all started by Claude Walter, a graduate in industrial engineering, while working as a manager for Percussions de Strasbourg. He was responsible for managing the technical production, repair and maintenance of instrumental park and touring logistics. The many road and air transport instruments required packaging solutions and appropriate and efficient protection.
Being passionate and creative, he made his first set of flight-cases to address these constraints.


Claude and Catherine WALTER established Rythmes & Sons in 1981.

To date the company has 3 divisions:

Design and manufacture of flight-cases

Production of 20,000 flight-cases per year allows Rythmes & Sons to position itself as a leading global manufacturer. Based in Alsace since its inception Rythmes & Sons has 6000 m2 of buildings which includes the design and sales department and the production and storage unit.
We offer appropriate solutions for multiple industries: events, industry, medical, automotive, fashion, military ...
