Commercial vehicle safety step supplier Handistep is under new ownership, with Harry Bradshaw and Martyn Reeves the new joint owners of the company.
Handistep’s range includes steps for panel vans and box-bodied vehicles, which are now high on the list of vehicle specification priorities for many major fleets.
Bradshaw has been a director of the company since day one and also runs Ringwood-based engineering firm Walker Scott, which manufactures Handistep’s products along with electrical wiring harnesses.
Martyn Reeves, meanwhile, is a director of commercial vehicle dry freight bodybuilder Bevan Group.
The company’s steps are manufactured to stringent ISO 9001 (2008) standards and offer 1,000 hours of salt spray suppression – twice the industry standard. They are also capable of protecting vehicles by absorbing low-speed impacts.
