The com­pa­ny

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.
