Holdon® Systems - The true original story
Once upon a time...
Once upon a time there was a farmer in the small village of Hol in Sweden - who got tired of tarps and eyelets getting torned off. He came up with a fastening device to solve the problem and went to a manufacturer nearby and asked them to produce the device/gear - a "don" in Swedish, made out of strong glass reinforced nylon. He named the product Holdon and applied for a patent. His paths was crossed by Amicus Trade AB (Holdon Systems), a banner material supplier to the Sign Industry and together they developed the product and new application fields.
And so... the story begins...
