Over 120 years of looking to the future

© Kapsch

Since it was founded in 1892, Kapsch has been involved with the future. Whether telegraph, telephone, radio, or television, Kapsch has always played an important role in shaping modern developments. Evidence of this is shown in the more than 50 exhibits presented in a space of around 260 m2 at the newly opened corporate museum.

This fascination with the future follows the ideas of Wilhelm von Humboldt, who said “Only he who knows the past has a future.” The items displayed in the corporate museum lead into the major themes that Kapsch is involved with today: intelligent transport management, smart cities and Industry 4.0.
