Our History

What began in 1892 as a precision mechanics workshop for Morse and telegraph equipment in Vienna, today is a globally operating technology company and a leading provider of mobility solutions and communication services. The only constant in the always family-run business is change: Since its founding, Kapsch has been committed to its role as an innovator and technology pioneer, who quickly recognizes trends and responds with market-oriented solutions. From the production of the first portable transistor radio and the involvement in the digitalization of the Austrian telephone system to the construction of pioneering tolling systems around the globe – in regard to many technical milestones Kapsch has always been a decisive step ahead.

In doing so, we have never seen technology and progress as ends in themselves, but always focus on the needs of the users. This is the brand essence of Kapsch – all those years back as well as today .

Corporate Museum

In the summer of 2015, our Corporate Museum was opened. Over 50 exhibits from the company‘s long history are presented in a 260 m² space at the Kapsch Group headquarters in Vienna‘s 12th district. Follow our invitation and take a virtual tour around the exhibition!
