It was in 1936 that Albert Vigouroux first attempted to improve the way in which the vines of the `Chasselas de Moissac` table grape were trained. The first hand held tying tool was born and was given the name `Stop-Fil`. In 1960, his son Alain Vigouroux took over the business, and in 1993, his grandson, Michel, continued to develop it. Continuously improved and fine-tuned, the original principle of automatic tying developed into a range of products providing solutions in the fields of viticulture, tree nursery, market gardening, and for processing vegetables, flowers and industrial products. VIGOUROUX now provides its agricultural and industrial customers with a range of both hand held tying tools and fixed bundling machines. Vigouroux distributes its tying tools and bundling machines throughout Europe, on the American continent and in Asia.
