About TechZone - Airbag Service

TechZone is a fully licensed and insured family-owned and operated business. We have been working with Connecticut body shops since 2003 and take pride in providing our customers with a personal hands-on service. Our certified technicians use OEM factory scan tools to ensure our clients receive the most accurate diagnostic information.

Values & History

In the early '90s, engineer Douglas C. Hansen was working for an aerospace firm developing airbag inflators. He discovered there was a lack of understanding regarding airbag systems, how they worked, how they should be handled and how they should be repaired. Driven by his discovery and recent legislation that required all cars to be equipped with driver and passenger airbags, Hansen and his wife, Victoria, founded Airbag Service.

Industry Performance

Market & Competition

Automotive safety has become very important and airbag systems, explosive seatbelts, computers and interior technology have expanded throughout the industry. These high-tech safety features are no longer reserved for only luxury vehicles but are now mandated by the federal government for every passenger car in America. We've got a proven business system that focuses on this exciting segment of the automotive repair market.

Owning a franchise is about being in business for yourself but not by yourself.
