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.
