New Subsidiary

Frauscher axle counters and wheel detection systems have successfully operated throughout Australia for more than ten years.

To ensure the best localised service and fastest response times, an own Frauscher subsidiary is now established and located in Melbourne:

Frauscher Sensor Technology Australia Pty Ltd

David Townsend, who has been managing director of Frauscher Asia for five years, now takes on the role in Frauscher Sensor Technology Australia Pty Ltd.

He underlines the customer’s benefits of the new Frauscher subsidiary: "Our team in Melbourne is fully available and we are offering direct and immediate responses to technical and sales enquiries throughout the entire Asia-Pacific region."

An important next step

Michael Thiel, CEO Frauscher Sensor Technology, emphasises the importance of this next milestone in the history of the company:

"By closing the geographical gap between the headquarters in Austria and Melbourne, our customers in the Australian market will be able to discuss their requirements directly with local Frauscher experts. This ensures that they will receive the best solutions for their individual applications."

Up to now Frauscher has realised a number of prestigious projects in Australia and New Zealand. For example the Frauscher Advanced Counter FAdC was implemented for train detection on ARTC’s tracks between Port Augusta and Darwin / Kalgoorlie.

In order to realise train detection as well, New Zealand Railways uses Frauscher’s axle counter system ACS2000 for approximately 700 track sections.

"By strengthening our presence within the Asia-Pacific market, we ensure optimum service for both, existing and new customers. As of now system integrators and operators from Australia, New Zealand and related regions benefit from Frauscher as original equipment manufacturer on the spot. Based on this new development, we are looking forward to new and continued cooperation." Michael Thiel concludes.
