VITRONIC recently celebrated the opening of its first office in Austria. The company welcomed some 65 guests to its new premises in the technology center in Vienna’s aspern Seestadt area and even combined this occasion with the organization of its first Austria Forum. Numerous innovative solutions for safe and sustainable mobility on the roads were accordingly presented and practical user experiences were imparted. For example, Stefan Pfeiffer, police commissioner/head of the Feucht traffic police department (Bavaria), gave an emotional speech on ‘the problems currently facing the police when prosecuting traffic violations’.

Stefan Pfeiffer, Police Director/Head of the Feucht Traffic Police Station, Bavaria, is speaking on "Current Police Problems in the Prosecution of Traffic Violations."

The success story continues

After 16 successful years in the Austrian market, VITRONIC decided to get even closer to its customers and partners there. As a result, a dedicated and highly professional team of eight employees will now deal with all service, sales, and project inquiries at the new location in Vienna. The first POLISCAN Speed system was calibrated for use in Austria as early as 2007. Since then, it has been joined by many installations and customers such as ASFINAG and numerous municipalities from Vorarlberg to Burgenland and from Upper Austria to Carinthia as well as partners such as Swarco and G4S. As a result, there are around 150 active mobile, fixed, and semi-fixed POLISCAN Speed devices helping to improve road safety.

VITRONIC has been improving safety on Austria’s roads for many years. We are now taking a step closer to our customers and partners by setting up office in Vienna. Our team offers a combined 91 years of experience in road safety so that Vision Zero can become ever closer to being a reality here too"

I’m delighted that the VITRONIC family has grown once more with the addition of the Austrian office as we can now also work with our colleagues there to drive our vision of designing a safe and sustainable world. Currently, our new subsidiary in Vienna is focusing on traffic projects, but the strong Austrian industry is also increasingly asking for our solutions in the field of automation"
