Our history


HYDROBAR develops the first French ultra high pressure pump, with applications mainly specialised in waterjet cutting for the food sector.


BOURGOGNE HYDRO, a French manufacturer specialising in hydraulics, acquires the HYDROBAR company and continues to perfect the technology. New generations of machines are then created, with applications extending to manufacturing industry sectors, neutralisation of explosive devices and hydroforming, with several European patent applications.

Custom hydroforming machines


HYDROPROCESS® is formed, with the aim of continuing to develop the ultra high pressure technology and hydroforming, within an independent limited-liability company. All of the technicians involved since 1995 are kept on by HYDROPROCESS®. By introducing new skills coming from the manufacturing world, HYDROPROCESS® develops its market, mainly in the field of special machines.


Whilst continuing its activity of making special machines for the waterjet cutting and hydroforming sectors, HYDROPROCESS® supplements its product offering by bringing ChefCut® to market. This is a compact waterjet cutting machine, especially for catering professionals, semi-industrial companies and R&D laboratories in food industries.


HYDROPROCESS® wins the French “Stars et Métiers” award in the ‘technical innovation’ category for ChefCut®.


10 years after being created, HYDROPROCESS® has become an essential player in its business sector, with a turnover exceeding €3 M, of which a third comes from export sales.


With more than 200 machines sold, ChefCut® is now an essential tool for all the top pastry chefs, chocolatiers, and caterers in France and worldwide. HYDROPROCESS® updates its range by bringing out a brand-new model with even better performance and many innovative features (two international patents filed).

To support its growth, HYDROPROCESS® adapts its structure by hiring more personnel and setting up new offices.
