Frey AG Stans
Mankind has always had a desire to achieve the unthinkable and overcome unbeatable challenges. Making the mountains accessible with ropeway installations demonstrates the pioneering spirit of such visionaries.
The small group of experts who revolutionized the safety of mountain railways in the mid-1960s also had a dream: state-of-the-art technology should provide the safety and reliability that enables technology to move people. This vision provided the foundation for Frey AG Stans, one of the world's leading companies in the planning and manufacture of ropeway installation control systems and drives.
