The company was founded as Schrack AG in 1920 by Eduard Schrack. In 1939 he bought shares of the Ericsson Österreich Elektrizitäts AG. His son Eduard Harald Schrack joined the family company in 1952, started his career as a member of the management board and became CEO 1973-1991 following into his father’s footsteps. By then they renamed the company to Schrack Elektronik. E.H.Schrack revived the collaboration with Ericsson in 1978. During the 90’s the company started expanding rapidly towards Eastern Europe. 1994 he retired and sold it to Ericsson AG Austria. The security and communication system division was separated and sold due to a management buyout as an independent company named Schrack Seconet in the same year. The company started with 135 employees– and meanwhile increased to more than 500 employees around the world.
The Swiss Securitas Group holds 100% of the company’s shares. Hans Zavesky, the company’s founder, handed over the reins as operative general director to Wolfgang Kern at the end of 2005 and took over as chairman of the supervisory board on 22nd June 2006.
Within the Swiss Securitas Group there are three cross-border competence centres ensuring the best possible progress in terms of technical development in each division, with Schrack Seconet being responsible for the development of fire alarm, communication and billing systems. Therefore Austrian know-how continuously flows into international co-operations and contributes to securing facilities all around the world.
Schrack Seconet offers tailored, efficient solutions, which are developed and implemented for every challenge and in accordance with the individual wishes and requirements of every customer.
