It is my understanding that Cousin Freres manufactures the Tecnifibre String for Major Sport. Cousin Freres is a separate company that is in partnership with Major Sports.
In 1980 Major Sports developed the Tecnifibre string. This was a landmark event in the development of stringing technology.
Mr. Robin, a chemical engineer, developed the concept with Cousin Freres, the industrial partner, and Major Sports.
This was the beginning of the successful partnership between Major Sports and Cousin Freres that continues to this day.
