our journey to success
About Frauscher USA

More than 35 years of experience

Frauscher Sensor Technology was established in 1987 in St. Marienkirchen, Austria. In many parts of the world Frauscher is considered a leader in the design and manufacture of cutting-edge wheel sensors and axle counting technology, with a strong reputation for providing high quality products and outstanding customer service. Skilled engineering assistance from system design to troubleshooting is available to customers as needed. 

In 2015, Frauscher Sensor Technology USA was established in Princeton, New Jersey to introduce our products and technology to the North American marketplace. As our business grew, the importance of having product available locally became apparent. Frauscher established a full-service warehouse in Cranbury, NJ in 2018, providing quick turnaround within North America of all of Frauscher products.
