DAIRON Company history

- 1958 -

DAIRON establishments are created by Mr DAIRON Septime in Pruillé l'Eguillé in the French department of Sarthe.

Its main purpose back then was to build farming machinery, precisely tuber windrowers for potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes, for which the first DAIRON patent was awarded.
