Shaping the mobility of future with us
Striving for success. Always one idea ahead with krauth technology!
We have always been a leading innovator in public transport.
In 1926, our company founder Prof. Alfred Krauth with his invention of the “Galoppwechsler” revolutionized the daily work of the conductor in buses and trams. When the conductor's tasks became increasingly out of date, with the job of fare collection and ticket dispensing transferred to the driver, krauth developed the pay table with money changing functions. Both products are still important components of our product range. They characterize our pioneering solutions for mobility of the future. We have the ability to recognize market needs earlier than others to develop visions and turn them into first-class products.
We keep pace with the rapid development of everything from classic sales systems to e-ticketing systems. We offer high-quality complete solutions to transport companies who want to equip their operations with state-of-the-art technology. Consulting, development, production and implementation of comprehensive hardware and software solutions in the field of ticketing and mobility are among our core competencies. However, we are also constantly developing our organization so that we remain a strong, future-proof partner for our customers in this dynamic market environment.

We are regularly involved both as contributors and as participants in industry meetings and specialist forums. In addition, we are represented as exhibitors at the most important industry trade fairs.
