Stretch-Tie™ was developed out of necessity. I grew up on a commercial ornamental Nursery starting on a potting bench like most nursery workers. As years passed I spent many hours using, fighting with, and fixing our tying machines, and hand tying was so slow. There had to be a better way…
After several prototypes, and many years of Patent work Stretch-Tie™ was born. Launching in 2008 was terrible timing industry collapsing everywhere. Even during those years sales increased every year, and Stretch-Tie™ is rapidly becoming a standard in many agricultural sectors.
Thanks for all the support from Friends, colleagues, early adopters who believed in the product!
