Company history and milestones

1995

Unternehmensgeschichte

Christine und Markus O. Krapf gründeten 1995 in CH-8363 Bichelsee die Einzelunternehmung INTECH-KRAPF. Neben dem technischen Handel mit herkömmlichen Produkten für die industrielle Automation hat sich das Unternehmen immer stärker Richtung Vertrieb von Kommunikations-, Sicherheits- & Industrietechnik entwickelt. INTECH-KRAPF hat sich erfolgreich mit dem Vertrieb von Eigen- und Fremdprodukten für die Störmelde-, Fernwirk-, Steuerungs- und Datenkommunikationstechnik auseinandergesetzt.

1998

INTECH-KRAPF won the SBB tender for the renewal of point heating. With the TBOX, the control for the point heating for the SBB could be delivered and installed throughout Switzerland.

1999

The existing infrastructure in Bichelsee became too small. They found and moved into larger premises in CH-8362 Balterswil. There was enough space here for an office, warehouse and technical laboratory. Due to the new spatial and personnel possibilities, INTECH-KRAPF was also active internationally in special customer projects.

2000

INTECH-KRAPF was involved in the ticketing project for Autostadt, Wolfsburg, Germany. Thanks to our flexibility, the Autostadt opted for our system and we were able to deliver the complete ticketing made by INTECH to Wolfsburg.

2001

SCHLAEFLI AG joins INTECH. Schlaefli AG is a Swiss company with international operations. Security, access and communication systems as well as cash register equipment and counter systems have been manufactured and sold for over 40 years. In many countries, transport companies, banks, administrations, industrial, sports and amusement facilities are the places where Schlaefli products are used. The highest quality and absolute reliability are at the top of the company's philosophy. Christine and Markus O. Krapf take over the management of SCHLAEFLI AG. From this point on, all work will be carried out by INTECH employees. Together with partner companies, Schlaefli plans, manufactures and installs complete cash systems, porter's lodges, personal and material locks, also with high security requirements

The first cash corner goes into operation in Burgdorf. The external ATM was developed and produced in cooperation with the ATM manufacturers.

Between 2006 and 2007, most of the counters of the Aargau canton police were redesigned. INTECH-ICS was awarded the contract to plan, manufacture and install the 13 switches.

With this order, the cornerstone of "security from a single source" was laid.

All employees stayed and were taken over by the new management.
