Some products "Origin France Guaranteed

At INFACO, we didn't wait for the advent of "Made in France" to manufacture in France. Since the very first pruning shears were created and assembled in 1984, we have relied mainly on local partners. Promoting the Tarn, the Occitanie region and France in general thanks to the INFACO brand is part of our DNA. We strive to work with local suppliers to build lasting relationships based on trust, which is fundamental to us.

5 questions about the "Origine France Garantie" label

When did INFACO obtain its first " Origine France Garantie " label?

We obtained our first "Origine France Garantie" (OFG) label on 26 May 2014, for the ELECTROCOUP F3010. Now, a whole range of products has been awarded the OFG label: the Electroliv, the pruning machine, the thinning machine and, most recently, our new pruning shears, the F3020.

How do you obtain "Origine France Garantie" certification?

To obtain the OFG label, you have to submit an application to an approved body (at INFACO, we have gone through Bureau Veritas) which checks that the majority of spare parts are indeed manufactured in France. Once the application has been processed and validated, it goes through a confirmation audit, which involves a site visit. Certification is valid for 3 years, subject to annual follow-up visits.

What is the purpose of this distinction?

The OFG is a guarantee of quality that confirms the complete traceability of the finished product. It enables us to demonstrate our commitment to our customers and local players, and to promote our French expertise both at home and abroad.

Where do the spare parts used to make INFACO tools come from?

We try to work with suppliers who are close to home and who share our values. To name just two:

  • The aluminium head, the key part of our pruning shears, has been made in Gaillac, just 8 km from INFACO, since day one (1984);
  • Our blades have come from Thiers since 1987, the capital of cutlery!

We also attach particular importance to working with professionals who are the best in their fields. Below is a detailed map of our main supplier partners.

All parts are assembled on INFACO's premises in Cahuzac-sur-Vère, in the Tarn region of France.

What does this label change for INFACO?

Basically, it doesn't change a great many things, since the desire to manufacture in France has always been at the heart of our concerns. We could work with Asia to keep costs down, but we're proud of the fact that we prefer to promote French quality and expertise throughout the world. Since our products were awarded the 'Origine France Garantie' label, we haven't changed our working methods or our suppliers. In the end, this label is simply a reflection of what we've been doing since the company was founded.
