The Jourdain family has a history of entrepreneurship and innovation that dates back to 1887. They produced their first headlocks in the 1960s, however, they found they were not the right fit for the local French breeds. Maurice Jourdain came up with an innovative solution to widen the head passage creating the double-opening headlock. This became a huge success for Jourdain that rapidly made their brand superior.
Throughout the years and to this day Jourdain has continued with a succession of innovations, and they now hold over 50 patents. Their production facility with state of the art automation is about 646,000 sq. ft. Robots perform all the fabricating work which has allowed Jourdain to consistently produce a high-quality product. 180 tonnes of Jourdain product is distributed out of their facility every day.
Jourdain’s strong focus to become the best stabling manufacturer on the market, and to continually improve products based on producers feedback each year has enabled them to stand apart from the stabling competition.
