  • The P.I.S. (Passenger Information Systems) business will be taken over by the Swiss company PEL Passenger Electronics SA in Biel/ Bienne. All employees affected will be transferred to the new business.
  • PEL is a new Swiss company belonging to Mr. R. Kossatz, owner of the German company Fernmeldewerk München-Aubing GmbH (FW).
