Enrico Granzotto founds in 1979 the handicraft company GRANZOTTO Snc in the province of Trevisana in Italy.In the following years, growing tourism has led to an increasing demand for sophisticated and high-quality walking and climbing aids for safe movement in alpine terrain. Also the recreational sport in the winter – off the slopes – occupies an ever greater value for amateur athletes and calls for high-quality equipment.
