ATRON can already look back on a history of more than 30 years. Since its foundation in 1980, the company has become one of the leading providers of system solutions for public transport. The ATRON electronic GmbH with its headquarters in Munich and the business premises in Markt Schwaben has become a group over the course of years - the ATRON Group. There are branches in Dortmund and Zagreb (Croatia), and independent companies in Switzerland and Sweden.
ATRON's international orientation has started in 2005 with its first export order from Zagreb. In 2006 and 2007, orders from Sweden and Norway followed. Shortly after, ATRON won the first tenders in Switzerland. The sister company ATRON systems with branches in Switzerland and Sweden was founded to be able to provide customer service on location.
In 2012, ATRON has already generated half of its turnover abroad in Europe. In public transport in Switzerland, ATRON has a market share of around 60 percent. Europe-wide, ATRON has been able to win more than 200 transport companies as customers. More than 35,000 vehicles were equipped with ATRON on-board computers.
