Our company emerged from what was originally the Dresden branch – specialising in lightweight panel elements – of the ‘Leipzig Combine for Structural Elements and Fibre-Reinforced Building Materials’; this was later to be renamed ‘Baufa Engineering Leipzig’, before iFTD was finally established in 1992 with a workforce of ten people. We had already been gaining expertise in the fields of workshop design and design with aluminium and glass structures since the 1970s. In the 1990s, our collaboration with metal construction companies enabled us to expand across Germany. Our many commissions in the fields of structural analysis, workshop design and tendering mean that we can now look back on more than eighteen successful years in the industry.
During this time, we estimate that our metal construction business has brought in around Euro 120 million. We have eight modern CAD workstations. The creative and technically proficient way in which these are used enables us to keep pace with ever more challenging developments in the façade market, in close collaboration with our customers. The Managing Director of iFTD is Frank Jarrath, who is also your first point of contact. We have been a member of the Association of Façade Engineering (VFT) in Frankfurt am Main since 1993.
