THE 70'S

TENAX offers bi-expanded extruded netting as an alternative to metal

The range of extruded fencing products was widened thanks to TENAX.
The original TENAX longitudinal and transversal stretching technology has made a fundamental contribution to this development, significantly increasing the resistance, strength and reliability of the netting, going so far as to achieve similar characteristics to metal netting. With the launch of its CINTOFLEX bi-oriented netting, TENAX introduced a new way of resolving fencing problems.

This translates into a refining of its ability to understand, and in some cases anticipate customer needs, and the desire to open up new channels of communication using its own marketing and technical/production experience.

In 2014 TENAX undergoes a major rebranding YOUR BUSINESS IS OUR BUSINESS. This is not an empty declaration of intent but the essence of what a TENAX partnership signifies.
