One of the last city buses built by FBW, a FBW Ramseier&Jenzer BNU618-71U EU3AR-1

Franz Brozincevic & Cie (FBW) was a Swiss maker of trucksmotorbuses and trolleybuses, active between 1922 and 1985 and based in Wetzikon.

FBW gained an excellent reputation for the top-level engineering and the long-lasting life of its products, never producing series but instead making individually tailored vehicles. It used only components of its own manufacture, a costly system that allowed the company to produce only a few hundred units per year.

Notable designs from FBW included the underfloor-engined trucks, in production since 1949.

In 1982, FBW was merged with its Swiss competitor, Saurer, to form Nutzfahrzeuggesellschaft Arbon & Wetzikon (NAW), but new trolleybuses continued to be badged as FBW into 1984. Daimler-Benz held a majority stake in the new company, NAW, and production of some types of FBW vehicles was discontinued, being replaced by assembly of Mercedes-Benz multi-axle heavy hauler trucks. The last FBW-badged truck was produced in 1985. However, NAW continued making trolleybuses until 2003.

16 Traktors,18 Gyrobusse, 498 Trolleybus, 1012 Trailer, 1263 Busses and 3878 Trucks

Trolleybuses were a significant part of FBW production. Trolleybus production extended from 1932 until 1984. FBW supplied trolleybuses to 12 different Swiss cities, often multiple batches in different periods, and two cities in Czechoslovakia.

Trolleybuses

Trolleybuses built by FBW are still in operation in several cities, both in Switzerland and in a few other countries where trolleybuses were sold secondhand for continued use after being withdrawn in the Swiss city concerned, such as in PloieştiRomania, where ex-Genève FBW vehicles (acquired secondhand in 2006) comprised the majority of the city’s trolleybus fleet at the end of 2007.

Three FBW trolleybuses built in 1959–1963 are also in regular passenger service in 2011 in Valparaíso, Chile, where the privately owned trolleybus system acquired them secondhand from the Zürich transit system in 1991.

History and Development

I want to say extra thanks for the fotographs made for the site

http://www.trolleybus.ch and come from various members/photographers

such as Werner Hardmeier or Andreas Widmer. The names of the

photographers are clearly mentioned on our pages, so it would indeed be

the minimum to include the names of the photographers (as an example ©

Author: Jeroen

In Dutch, my homelanguage: Ik ben Jeroen, tot januari 2015 was ik al dik 26 jaar werkzaam in een psychiatrisch ziekenhuis in een stad vlakbij Werelds grootste havenstad Rotterdam. Eerst als verpleegkundige/begeleider op high care, later op afdeling dubbeldiagnose (verslavingen) en ook nog een tijdje als administratief medewerker. Ik heb een spierziekte "Poli Myositis" (alle spieren zijn ontstoken) daardoor weinig energie. Sinds augustus 2015 is daarbij de diagnose Kanker gesteld, en ben ik helemaal arbeidsongeschikt geworden en zit middenin de behandelfase. Gelukkig ben ik daarnaast getrouwd, vader, en opa, en heb de nodige hobby's. Een daarvan is transportmiddelen verzamelen en daarmee een blog schrijven. Dit blog begon met bussen, maar nu komen ook sleepboten, auto's trucks en dergelijke aan bod. Kijk en geniet met me mee, reageer, en vul gerust aan. Fouten zal ik ook graag verbeteren. In English: I'm Jeroen, till januari 2015 I was already 26 years working as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital, near Rotterdam, Worlds biggest harbour with more than 98 nationalities living within it's borders. First I worked on closed high care ward and the last years on a ward with mainly addicted people. I liked my work very much. In 2007 I got ill. I got the diagnose Poli Myositis, a musscle dissease. Al my mussles are inflamed. And last august I got another diagnose. Cancer. It's plaveicelcel carcinoma and treated with Chemo and radioation. So I've even less energy than the last years. Still I try to make something of my life and the blog is helping with surviving with some pleasure.
