The FGTCLB Joins TYPO3 Platinum Membership

Knowledge exchange and community involvement are the motivation for one of the world’s largest TYPO3 agency networks joining the top-tier TYPO3 Association membership.

Baar, Switzerland, 17 March 2022

The FGTCLB  (pronounced “Fight Club”) has been relying on open source software for more than 20 years. With more than 100 employees in five agencies, the network is built around active involvement in the TYPO3 CMS community.

Choosing TYPO3 and Supporting Open Source

“Ever since the idea for the FGTCLB came up, we wanted to become a platinum member,” says FGTCLB co-founder Adrian Zimmermann. “We have faith in the development of TYPO3 and are looking forward to getting more involved in further developments and the community.”

As an owner of the Swiss web agency Snowflake, Zimmermann has taken part in numerous projects with the TYPO3 content management system. “The bandwidth of the Open Source Software becomes clear when you look at the wide variety of projects and industries where the FGTCLB partner agencies have made their mark,” he says.

Welcoming a Network of TYPO3 Association Members

“FGTCLB is not only a member, but a network of existing association members,” says  TYPO3 Association president Olivier Dobberkau. “That they choose to make their network a member as well illustrates their commitment to open source and the TYPO3 project in particular.”

TYPO3 is designed for complexity and scalability and is suitable for a wide range of digital solutions, from smaller websites to large-scale portals. Over the years, the FGTCLB members have treasured these strengths and made university websites one of their specializations. These websites have diverse target groups, numerous stakeholders, and comprehensive content.
