The TomSystem was designed by Spanish company Agrifast, a subsidiary of Grupodesa, which is one of Europe’s leading industrial groups in the fastenings sector. Following extensive trials in Holland the original Version 1 model was launched commercially in late 2012. Following further development, and reacting to great feedback from end users, the new TomSystem V 2.0 was released in 2017. The new V 2.0 model is 350gm lighter and more ergonomic then it’s predecessor making it much easier to use.
