In 1984, Our President Daniel Delmas invented the world’s first electric pruning shears.
INFACO S. A. was then founded as a family business. In 1985, at the SITEVI international exhibition in Montpellier, Daniel Delmas won the Golden Palm Award for Best Innovation for his “ELECTROCOUP” electric shear; INFACO sold its first 500 ELECTROCOUP shears during the three-day viticultural trade show.
For the past thirty years, INFACO has been dedicated exclusively to the manufacturing of the “Electrocoup” electronic pruning shear, designed for the pruning and lopping of vines, fruit trees etc.
