Company History

FTA - your reliable partner since 1961


Change of role at FTA Fahrzeugtechnik AG

In September 2023, Transtech Holding AG from Muhen will take over FTA Fahrzeugtechnik AG.

With the same values as FTA, the handover of the company was definitely a success.

Transtech Holding consists of the companies Trelco AG, Swissfilter AG and Zehnder Batterien AG. During their long existence, all three companies have established themselves as established players in the Swiss market.

The FTA should benefit from the resulting synergies and be able to further expand its market share.
