100 years of Lower Austria - traditional company TEST-FUCHS - for more than 75 years

The company TEST-FUCHS stands for innovation and top technology and has been for more than 75 years!

The success story began in Groß-Siegharts 75 years ago with Fritz Fuchs, who founded a small company in the field of automotive testing equipment. The family business grew extremely successfully, expanded and changed the product portfolio and is today in the third generation a leading global company in the field of test systems for the aerospace industry as well as for the development and manufacture of ground support equipment for civil and military aviation known.

Innovative for the future

Other pillars of the innovative Lower Austrian company are the manufacture and maintenance of flying components as well as the production of cryogenic valves. In cooperation with other Austrian technology leaders, TEST-FUCHS will bring its competencies for sustainable mobility to the road in the future. With the know-how from space travel, special valves are developed for the first LH2 cryotank system for commercial vehicles. The company will therefore rely heavily on hydrogen technology in the future. With excellent know-how, short lead times and pronounced quality awareness, TEST-FUCHS supplies aircraft manufacturers, airlines, original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and maintenance, repair and overhaul companies (MRO).

Top training in the region

The Groß-Siegharts site has around 450 employees. In addition to its headquarters in Austria, TEST-FUCHS is also represented in Germany, Italy, Great Britain, France, Singapore, China and the USA, and the company employs a total of more than 500 people. We are currently looking for more skilled workers. In order to strengthen the specialist development paths, in addition to the apprenticeship training, a trainee program for HTL graduates in the engineering area was recently started.
