ATAX was a company based at Oullins in the industrial suburbs of Lyon in southern France. They produced stems and bars under the names ATAX and Philippe, the latter being the more up-market brand. Some Philippe models of stems and bars were also produced for the Spidel collaboration of Maillard, Simplex, Stronglight and ATAX in the '70s.

For the detail-minded, Atax is the ancient Roman name for the Aude river that flows out of the Pyrenees to the Mediterranean.

We believe ATAX is no longer in business
