From a Swabian workshop business to an internationally active SME (small to medium-sized enterprise) – this is how one can describe the development of the fischer Group of Companies since its foundation in the year 1948. The characteristic feature of the company is its power of innovations, which has repeatedly led not only to the development of new products, but also the opening of new areas of business. Today these are divisions of “fischer fixing systems”, “fischer automotive systems”, “fischertechnik”, “fischer Consulting” and “LNT Automation”. fischer is outstanding in its competence for the development of new products, with twenty times as many patent applications per employee than the average of the German economy.
Today, the fischer Group of Companies comprises 47 subsidiaries in 35 countries and employs 5,200 members of staff worldwide. Production sites are located in Argentina, Brazil, China, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, and the USA. The family business is located in Waldachtal-Tumlingen in the northern Black Forest, approximately 60 kilometres to the southwest of Stuttgart.
