FISCHER, founded in 1940 by Karl Eugen Fischer, produced initially everything which was needed at that time. The range reached over cooking pots to bridges. In 1949 the foundations were laid for FISCHER’s success by means of the first guillotine shear and press brake designed and produced for own need.

In 1970 the course was determined newly for the company when FISCHER developed the first steel cord cutting line for the tyre industry and within short time FISCHER became technology and market leader for cord cutting lines.

FISCHER cord cutting lines are manufactured for the assembly of plies and breakers according to customers’ wishes and they are used by all well-known tyre producers around the world. Much know-how and latest technology guarantee high availability, precision and quality of FISCHER cord cutting lines. The Quality Management Certificate DIN EN ISO 9001 obtained in 1998 sets new quality standards. Furthermore, in 2005 FISCHER makes an environmental contribution by means of achieving the Environmental Management System Certificate DIN EN ISO 14001:2005.

In 2006 a Management-Buy-out was effected and at the same time the acquisition of the subsidiary in USA, the Karl Eugen Fischer LLC which, by then, had been an independent company and has been integrated into the FISCHER Group.

Our service program is completed by our service and regrinding center in Qingdao which had been opened in 2009 for our Asian market and customers.

A change in ownership took place in 2013.

In 2013, too, the Fischer company was awarded the "Systematic Safety" seal approval for their systematic and effective safety and health management. The precondition for obtaining this seal approval was the successful introduction and auditing of a safety and health management system based on the relevant national guidelines.
