Aignep was established in 1976 as a contracting company for the water and hydraulics industries.

During the 80s and 90s Aignep expanded its production to include a range of fittings and couplings.

In 1992 Aignep merged with Bugatti Group, thus expanding their interest in many other fields, such as outdoor lamps and machine tools.

Aignep produce fittings, couplings, valves and cylinders, including a wide range of handmade GHILUX ball valves with an On-Off function available in a number of versions and dimensions.
