Gladbeck Kürten Overath Euskirchen Wetzlar Göttingen Kirchheim Ilmenau Mellingen Nürnberg Dresden New look for berghaus-verkehrstechnik.de and avs-verkehrssicherung.de Following the positive response to the redesign of our mobileschutzwaende.de website, we have now also revamped the avs-verkehrssicherung.de and Berghaus-verkehrstechnik.de websites with our current fresh design. Both websites were relaunched at the start of January with a particular focus on clear presentation and easy legibility in what is known as „responsive web design“. When you visit our websites, you will find that the on-screen display and corresponding resolution adapt automatically to the differing requirements of mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets. The screen now shows visitors interesting information, technical details and illustrations of our traffic safety products and the services provided by AVS Traffic Safety.

Simply take a look at our vacancies: www.berghaus-verkehrstechnik.de/stellenangebote/ As announced, the new Berghaus catalogue will be available for downloading on our website as from the end of March in good time for the Intertraffic: www.berghaus-verkehrstechnik.de/en/download/productcatalogue/ F.V.S. becomes AVS Nürnberg FVS is changing its name to AVS Nürnberg, thus making it clearer that the company belongs to the successful AVS Traffic Safety Group. „FVS Fachbetrieb für Verkehrseinrichtungen auf Straßen GmbH“ from Wendelstein has changed its name and is now called „AVS Nürnberg GmbH“. At the same time the company has also moved to new premises a few metres down the road at Sperbersloher Straße 568. The warehouse is staying where it was in Sperbersloher Straße 556, 90530 Wendelstein. „Of course there’s always a risk in changing the name of a company well-known for top quality in traffic safety“, admits Managing Director Stefan Krauß. „But we wanted to set an external sign that we belong to the successful service organisation of the AVS Traffic Safety Group. So changing our name wasn’t a difficult decision in the end.“ With a knowing smile on his lips, he adds: „Taken literally, there’s not much of a change: all we’ve done is replace the F with an A.“ The AVS Traffic Safety Group includes Peter Berghaus GmbH as manufacturer of innovative traffic technology and mobile crash barriers together with 14 AVS Traffic Safety sites throughout Germany with more than 500 employees working in a highly efficient service network (see report above). This puts us in a position to offer traffic technology and traffic safety from a single source, for the benefit of our customers.
