FTA - your reliable partner since 1961
FTA is a family-run public limited company under the direction of Karin Kaufmann (daughter of the company founder Hans W. Kaufmann) and her husband Roland Wasem.
Computer scientist Martin Kaufmann (son of the company founder) is in charge of the IT network. The eldest daughter Ingrid Kaufmann is responsible for the properties. Today, FTA founder Hans W. Kaufmann is still active in an advisory capacity in the Supervisory Board.
The Swiss head office with modern offices, warehouses and workshops is located in Unterentfelden, a neighbouring municipality of Aarau. This central location between Zurich and Bern is highly important to our quick delivery service. Fast delivery is also guaranteed to all the federal states in Germany thanks to modern logistics. Today, FTA is one of the leading providers of wheels, casters, ball casters and transport devices. The product range, which includes several thousand articles, is supplemented by custom manufacturing in the area of wheels and casters, which are manufactured according to customer specifications.
FTA Fahrzeugtechnik GmbH is formed in Germany, which supports the EU region from Bad Säckingen.
The product range is expanded through sales of the Danish “Brenderup” car trailers. An independent company, FTA Anhänger AG, was formed from it in 1994. A large exhibition with all kinds of trailers has been located in 5033 Buchs AG since March 2009. www.fta-anhaenger.ch
In-house production was supplemented over the course of the years by selected products of worldwide leading manufacturers. Through this product diversity, FTA is capable of offering the best products in the market regardless of the manufacturer.
Out of the consulting company and design office emerged a public limited company with lines of business for wheels, casters, transport devices and means of conveyance.
With his engineering office for vehicle construction, company founder Hans W. Kaufmann laid the cornerstone for FTA in Aarau. In that time, we developed and designed transport devices and specialised vehicles in particular.
