Ecotechnics was established in Florence in 1995. Innovative ideas instantly found fertile ground and a privileged environment: Tuscany has always been strongly associated with research and innovation, featuring excellent research centres and highly qualified universities. The region has thus reached a high index of human resources and competences, capable of generating strong innovative development.
The initially small factory soon specialised in air conditioning service units for recovery, recycling and recharging of air conditioning systems in the automotive industry. Ecotechnics achieved a leading global position in a few years. The key to the organisation’s success is ongoing research for improvement and dedication to providing technological development for the benefit of the user. Driven by this concept, Ecotechnics has earned numerous international patents over the years and is proud to have invented and introduced a host of advanced functions, such as the fully automatic service process, the compact aluminium manifold and the A/C diagnostic function integrated in an A/C service unit. The company Snap-on Climate Solutions Srl was established following the acquisition of Ecotechnics Spa by the American holding Snap-on in 2015. Snap-on is one of world’s leading manufacturers of innovative tools, diagnostic systems and equipment, and has been service provider for professional users in the industrial and automotive sector since 1920. The brand Ecotechnics and Snap-on have defined specific synergic competences and, together with the other brands of the group, pursue the common goal of developing the most valuable productivity solutions in the world.
Today the Ecotechnics brand is present in more than 80 countries worldwide through a network of selected and specialised dealers.
