The history of the Kapsch company is a fascinating journey from its beginnings in 1892 to the modern era after the year 2000. Founded by Johann Kapsch in Vienna, the company started as a precision engineering workshop producing Morse telegraphs, telegraphs, and telephones. After World War I, Kapsch expanded its production to capacitors and dry cell batteries and entered the emerging field of radios. The company remained innovative and introduced the first telephone call in Austria's digital mobile network in 1986. After 2000, the Kapsch family divided its activities, and Kapsch Holding GmbH now operates independently, investing in diverse business areas, and continues the history of its successful corporate development.

Kapsch begins manufacturing capacitors and dry cell batteries. The production of radios begins: the first KAPSCH radio receiver "Pioneer L" with three-tube loudspeaker technology. Soon after, Kapsch becomes a co-founder of RAVAG, the Austrian Radio Traffic AG, and is thus crucial for the Austrian radio era.


TV broadcasting largely enters Austrian households, and Kapsch introduces the first black and white television, model TFS-56, to the Austrian market.
