Company history and milestones
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The stock corporation INTECH-ICS AG was founded from the sole proprietorship and has taken over 100% of all the tasks of the previous company. The new company is still fully owned by the family.
Zurich Airport also opted for our overhead lockers. In 2004, the first lockers at Zurich Airport were opened to international visitors.
The management of INTECH took over the entire share package of the company Schlaefli AG. It became the family property of Christine and Markus O. Krapf. Schlaefli's registered office was relocated from Hergiswil / NW to Balterswil / TG.
INTECH-ICS installed the world's first refrigerated lockers in Sihlcity.
The canteen in the RAZ Herzogenbuchsee was equipped with a lifting window for serving food.
The security gates for the personnel were delivered and installed at Zurich Airport.
The first rental bank container was developed and built by INTECH-ICS. It can be rented so that the bank can continue to operate while the branch is being remodeled.
As the company grew, the premises in Balterswil became too cramped. After a long search for suitable rooms, we found what we were looking for. The office workplaces were relocated to the neighboring village of Wallenwil. New storage space has been added in Balterswil.
The tunnel monitoring of the VBZ was realized by us.
SBB relies on our know-how! The latest generation of lockers for the SBB were put into operation at the Geneva location.
The 100th mobile bank was placed in Couvet. Special drive-in version.
The founding couple Krapf are allowed to go into their well-deserved retirement. The INTECH team would like to thank you very much for your tireless efforts. A succession plan has been found. Gunnar Hubmann and Christian Böhlen, two long-term employees, take over the business. You want to continue the company according to the motto “stay true to the roots and grow healthily”.
All employees stayed and were taken over by the new management.
The names INTECH and SCHLAEFLI will now disappear from the logo. Everything runs under the name INTECH-ICS.
