As exclusive suppliers of vine posts to Vine-Works in the UK, EWS (Manufacturing) Ltd is looking forward to joining the UK viticulture specialists on their stand at Fruit Focus this year and exhibiting its products.

Through working closely with Vine-Works in the UK and their associated viticulture specialists in mainland Europe, EWS has developed a range of steel vineyard posts which are considered to be the best value product on the market.

The intermediate and end posts are designed to offer maximum strength which ensures they are able to withstand modern automated harvesting equipment, without damage to post or tags.
