Always looking into the future
The Kapsch Group is synonymous with visionary and success-oriented thinking for over 100 years. At the beginning of the 20th century, the company developed products for the telegraph industry; in the 50s, it was the broad spectrum of consumer electronics. Today the global success of our traffic telematics and traffic management solutions offers a clear indication of our consequent and rigorous commitment toward the future. Visionary thinking, responsible leadership and entrepreneurial spirit continue to ensure the growth of our group. These create that solid foundation which supports each of the group companies in achieving outstanding performance and industry leadership to enable us to be always one step ahead.
A company that looks to the future must be innovative. Our employees’ creativity and our determination to find the best solutions in terms of both technology and commercial viability have made us a pioneer in a dynamic business environment. And we will continue this path through our inquisitive nature, human involvement and economic consequence. The synthesis of profitability and innovation enables us to utilize technologies in practical solutions with added value for our customers. In Austria, for example, we implemented a nationwide road user charging system for trucks – the first of its kind anywhere in the world. Technical perfection combined with cost-effectiveness – for the real world needs of our customers.
Always striving for excellence
"Create value to generate value" – since its founding the Kapsch Group is committed to the pursuit of value creation for our customers, employees and society. This philosophy was a central focus of our founder Johann Kapsch in his fine mechanical workshop, and today still influences our thinking and behaviour. We not only seek technical excellence in our solutions but also challenge our employees around the world to perform their work to create consistent and sustainable benefits for our customers. The combination of efficiency and security thus creates our vital competitive edge. A sound reason for long lasting trust and a long-term business relationship with our customers. For their benefit and thus for ours.
Always aware of our responsibilities
For us, taking responsibility means offering excellent technology solutions and services provided by dedicated employees within long-term partnerships – while fulfilling our obligations to the community at large. Entrepreneurial success has always been understood throughout the Kapsch Group to be synonymous with good corporate citizenship. Toward our staff, our customers and our partners, as well as the environment and society. This is underscored by many projects and initiatives, such as in education or in social welfare. We promote the integration of disadvantaged members of society into the workforce; we support exceptional cultural projects, or undertake the responsibility to manage resources conscientiously.
Always where you need us
Since the founding of our company, we have always geared our business processes, products and our organizational structure to our customers’ needs. The synthesis of customer orientation and global presence dominates our corporate strategy. Yesterday, today and in the future. We secure profitable growth by leveraging new technologies, penetrating emerging markets, and by offering customers global and local support. This is backed by international acquisitions, offices around the world, and cross-border projects. Our global presence creates sustainable value at the local level, and provides our customers important competitive advantages in their markets.
