Brief history

In 1978, Jens Friedrich and Norbert Lochner founded the eponymous company "Friedrich + Lochner". In the domestic use and also among the customers, the name "FRILO" developed over time.

After the withdrawal of Norbert Lochner from the operative business, Jens Friedrich continued to run the company. He laid the foundations for a secure future, and so, in 1999, FRILO was integrated into the Nemetschek Group as an independent brand.

The Nemetschek Group is a pioneer for digital transformation in the AEC industry. As the sole corporate group worldwide, Nemetschek covers the entire life cycle of building and infrastructure projects with its software solutions and guides its customers into the future of digitalization. The transition to the concern provided a fertile breeding ground to adapt FRILO.Software to the needs of a fast and constantly changing technology.

In 2002, Hans Stegmüller took over the management. A newly structured assurance system was created, the "Hotline" department was expanded and the service for the customers was further improved.

With the introduction of European standards, the internationalization of FRILO has also picked up speed. This means that FRILO.Software users can easily work and plan for different countries.

Since December 2018, Markus Gallenberger has been the new managing director of FRILO Software GmbH and continues to expand the company. Currently, #teamfrilo counts about 50 colleagues.

Today, FRILO has more than 60% market share in German-speaking countries and stands for:
