Our innovative welding technology solutions are the result of decades of experience and tradition. The name Fronius has been synonymous with intensive research, revolutionary technologies and exceptional product quality since 1945.
The company emerged from humble beginnings: on 10th June 1945, the engineer Günter Fronius founded the company in Pettenbach, Upper Austria. Initially he focussed on the production of battery charging systems and welding transformers. Around 1950, Fronius launched the first welding transformer with magnet-yoke-control. This allowed the user to adjust the welding current to any value. It was the first of many innovations from Fronius that would make a lasting impression on the world of welding technology.
Today, Fronius is the global technology leader and European market leader in welding technology. Constant innovation has been and always will be the key to the company’s success in our endeavour to shift the limits of what’s possible.
