Frauscher has founded a new, separate company, Sensonic, for its Fiber Optic Sensing (FOS) business, and rebranding itself as two technology companies "ready for the future." As a spin-off, Sensonic, led by CEO Christian Pucher, will concentrate on "solutions that will revolutionize the way railways operate their networks to increase efficiency and significantly reduce costs,” Frauscher said. "The company will pursue a completely new business model. Sensonic is the pioneer in FOS for railways and the first to offer complete, area-wide tracking and monitoring solutions based on Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)."
"With these two important milestones, we are definitely on track," said Frauscher Group CEO Michael Thiel. "Even under the conditions of the need for digitalization, our solutions will continue to set trends. Frauscher is a company that is always in motion, and we have a vision for the global railway market. We provide our customers with tailor-made solutions that reflect the state of the art. We have been doing this for decades, and that is what we will do in the future. By founding Sensonic, we want to ensure that we continue to drive innovation with a clear focus on the needs of our customers. Sensonic will certainly become a game-changer in terms of how operations and maintenance will be planned and executed in the future."
