D’Ieteren Frères

Anciens Etablissements D’Ieteren Frères was a well established coachbuilder with a history dating back to 1805. They had produced bodywork for Bugatti, Delage, Packard, Studebaker, Rolls Royce and Hispano-Suiza.

In the 1950s they took up the rights to build the Piatti, and were also associated with Aldimi scooters.

In the mid-70s Roland D'Ieteren became head of the company and it expanded dramatically as main agents for NSU/Audi, becoming the largest automotive network in Belgium.
