THE STORY OF HANDYTECH

CARROZZERIA 71 was founded in 1971 as a car body repair workshop. In 1972 it expanded its premises, widening its activities to include the repair of industrial vehicles.
Always on the look-out for new market opportunities, the company's next step was to begin designing and modifying special transport and support vehicles for the motor racing sector (Lancia, Martini Racing) etc.

Special paintwork and air-brushed designs

As its activities continued to expand and diversify, CARROZERIA 71's next venture was the design and manufacture of special vehicles, such as mobile office facilities for the Mininstry of Agriculture and Forestries, while also specialising in the special paintwork and air-brushed designs sector.

1978: The first prototype of the lifting platform

In 1978, thanks to his partnership with a disabled friend who markets orthopedic products and wheelchairs, the company's founder, Renzo Nosenzo, took the first steps that would see CARROZZERIA 71 move into the disabled sector.
Together, the two friends designed the first prototype lifting platform, called HELP III. The same year, CARROZZERIA 71 presented Help III for the first time at the "Intersan" trade fair in Milan, as well as other minor events.
It was the beginning of a new adventure.

The Handytech brand and the First Multi-adapted Vehicle

Over the following years CARROZZERIA 71 began to concentrate more and more on the disability vehicle sector, developing new products, producing innovative fittings and accessories and creating the HANDYTECH brand, which would come to identify all its products from then on.
The company participated in various initiatives and activities in the sector, resulting in collaborations with foreign companies, such as Okey Technologie. In 1993, a joint partnership with the latter company and Fiat resulted in the first multi-adapated car, which was presented at the FIAT stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Approval for its products at the national level

For CARROZZERIA 71 the next step was to initiate the national approval procedure for its products.
Having overcome this first obstacle, with great difficulty, the company participated in the national "Motorshow "and "Auto Show "events together with Fiat; in addition to other major trade fairs and events.
Then, in 1995, the slow transformation process, together with the notable results achieved during those first few years, led CARROZZERIA 71 to abandon, albeit reluctantly, the bodywork sector, and devote itself entirely to the design and development of vehicles and transport systems for people with impaired mobility, creating new products, and obtaining new government approvals.

Distribution network and post sales service

As the new activity began to expand, the need for a distribution network to provide installation and post-sales services became apparent. This network now includes over 60 authorised Handytech centres, providing technical and commercial assistance all over Italy.

Production of special vehicles

Thanks to the company's policy of constant innovation and the versatility of its staff, Handytech is able to satisy even the most unusual requirements, such as disabled driving systems for tractors (in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture), camper vans, Sali Multi Purpose Vehicles&Fully autonomous driving systems, single and multiple person transport vehicles capable of accommodating several wheelchair-bound passengers at the same time.

Low Floor Vehicles and Important Collaborations

In 2010, as a result of profitable collaborations with the leading Car Manufacturers, the company produced the first low floor versions of the Peugeot Partner and Expert Tepee models, followed by the Dacia Logan and Renault Kangoo, improved the adaptations to the Fiat Doblo and, above all, began expanding its services to include Voluntary Associations, Public Health and Welfare organisations, and cooperatives that work for the benefit of people with impaired mobility, becoming an official Supplier to the Italian Red Cross in some parts of the country.

Handytech "Freetime"

In 2003 Handytech - Carrozzeria 71 Srl began developing a new type of product, with the aim of getting its customers back "on their bikes". This passion drove Handytech to produce the first prototypes in 2004 and to obtain all necessary approvals in 2007.
The Freetime network was officially launched in 2008, offering a range of solutions for every need. Since then, the service has enjoyed increasing success, year after year.

PHILOSOPHY

Since 1971, we have been doing things our way, producing items designed to offer our customers safety, reliability and quality, while placing the onus on establishing and maintaining a personal relationship with our clientele. In a society increasingly oriented towards easy earnings, and the mass production of standardised, impersonal products, we believe that attention to detail, design features, the flexibility necessary to tailor products to individual needs, and the experience gained over more than thirty years in the sector represent the added values that have allowed us to become a leading manufacturer of equipment and adaptations for driving and transport systems for disabled people. We believe it is not enough simply to produce a "device" designed to meet the needs of the customer, therefore, in addition to installing and servicing the products, our nationwide network of selected distribution partners is capable of providing a whole range of complementary services, which is what sets us apart from the other companies in the sector.
Our company philosophy, together with the enthusiasm that we bring to work with us every day, has led to us create the largest fleet of multi-adapted vehicles for hireunder the HANDYTECHRENT brand.

"...We like to think that what has been done so far is just the beginning, we believe that the stimulus and the enthusiasm that our customers send us every day can be the starting point for new challenges."

(Our founder, R. Nosenzo)
