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 Tachometerwerke GmbH with the production of the first tachometers used worldwide. 

Since then we have evolved into the internationally sought-after specialists in rail traffic technology that we are today. Our leadership in innovation is based on many 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-owned company, without being weighed down by complex company structures, we have retained the maximum possible flexibility and customer focus.
