Corporate Museum

History reloaded

Originally designed as a collection of historical Kapsch products at Hoffmannsplatz, and last exhibited at Kapsch BusinessCom, the history of the Kapsch Group is now accommodated in the building of Kapsch CarrierCom. “The historical development of the Group was recreated for the new museum and arranged chronologically and by theme to make Kapsch’s roots tangible for visitors”, summarized Alf Netek, CMO of the Group and project manager for the new Kapsch Museum.

The great variety of well-preserved exhibition pieces, which in some cases have already faded into obscurity, are now exhibited thanks to the commitment of Erwin Macho. In the following interview he provides us an insight into the museum.
