More than 400 customers in 130 countries worldwide now rely on Frequentis. Frequentis employs about 1,600 employees, and turnover is about €250 million (US$265 million). Key factors for success in the early days included targeted specialization in air traffic control and a well-planned leap across Austria’s borders into neighboring markets.
Frequentis expanded outside of Austria in 1985, initially to Germany, before expanding into the rest of Europe in the 1990s. In 1994, Frequentis added Mexico to its areas of focus. The company now operates a global network of subsidiaries, characterized by their high customer focus and representing an essential success factor for further market penetration.
“Vision has always played an important role in the development of Frequentis,” said CEO Hannes Bardach. “Strong vision has always been and remains a source of innovative impetus for us. This is particularly important for us at the moment so that we can react quickly to the digital revolution and to changing customer requirements with new business models.”
