Son of French winegrowers living in Algeria, André Labaronne is fascinated by the conquest of the desert. However, he notes that the tankers that bring water back empty.

In 1957, he filed his first patent (the first in a long series) entitled “Vehicle equipment device for the transport of various goods, liquid or heavy”.
