SIP Protection’s story starts in 1970. S.I.P. stands for Société Industrielle de Prêt-à-porter, and was founded on the 1st Jan of that year in Foix, a town in the South West of France. During many years, SIP was a manufacturer of regular trousers for many of the French retailers. Only in the early 1990s, SIP gets involved with chainsaw protection.
