Our History

We have accompanied the development of modern mobility right from the beginning and have been influential in driving it forward. The successful result is there to be seen. In 1905 DEUTA started out as Deutsche Tachometer Werke GmbH with the production of the first tachometers to be used worldwide. 

Since then we have evolved into the internationally sought-after Specialists in Rail Traffic Technology that we are today. Our innovation in leadership is based on 111 years of experience and competence in the key technologies of Position/Speed Measuring and Indicator Technology as well as Recorder Technology and Train Safety technology.

The Connection between Innovation and Tradition

Despite all our innovative capacity, DEUTA remains loyal to its roots. As a family-led company, without being weighed down by complex company structures, we have retained the maximum possible flexibility and customer focus.
