Vitronic, a developer of machine-vision systems for traffic engineering, logistics, automotive, healthcare and 3D body scanning, has opened its first office in Austria.
The company marked the occasion by welcoming some 65 guests to its new premises in Vienna’s Aspern Seestadt area.
A team of eight employees will be based out of the new office and will deal with all service, sales, and project enquiries.
Daniel Scholz-Stein, CEO of Vitronic, said: “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.”
Vitronic, which was a thought leader partner of this year’s Road User Charging Conference in Brussels, has been active in the Austrian market for 16 years, with the company’s first Poliscan Speed system calibrated for use there in 2007.
Since then, it has been joined by many installations and customers such as ASFiNAG and a number of municipalities, including Vorarlberg, Burgenland and Carinthia, as well as partners Swarco and G4S.
As a result, there are currently around 150 active mobile, fixed, and semi-fixed Poliscan Speed devices in use around Austria.
