The Frauscher corporate group developed from the individual enterprise founded by Josef Frauscher in 1987 for electromechanics (now mechatronics). This enterprise was based on an invention of the company founder, regarding an innovative sensor to detect rolling stock. After a relatively long development phase, the company was able to expand at an above-average rate. In 1992 the individual enterprise was incorporated into a limited liability company and in 1997 the foundation stone for new company premises was laid, with that construction work having since been followed by six other structures as the company expanded further.
With a view to sustainable company development, Josef Frauscher included the company in the Josef Frauscher private foundation in 2002. This step promoted the further growth of the company, as rail customers insist on very long-term supply commitments that cannot really be guaranteed sustainably by private companies. Under the aegis of the JF private foundation, several companies were created, with Frauscher Sensortechnik and Frauscher Energietechnik carrying out intensive research and development activities.
