One group, many brands, one aim – success

Being a decentralised organisation allows the FORTEC Group to leverage its strengths more effectively. Major players in the Group are its two subsidiaries Distec GmbH and EMTRON electronic GmbH. In 2020 they took over the portfolio of FORTEC Elektronik AG, which had been operating as a supplier until that time. The FORTEC Group consists of eight firms and brands in total:
