75 years of the fine mechanical manufactory FISCHER

The high-quality optics and haptics of precision mechanical measurement technology still radiate a timeless beauty, sophisticated functionality and craftsmanship give it durability and value, that can accompany us for a whole life. These are values for which the precision engineering manufacturer FISCHER has stood for many years.

Autumn 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of our manufactory in the Erzgebirge mountains. This is a good occasion to look at the eventful history of the company and special FISCHER products. To continue the life's work of flight engineer Kurt Fischer is a great challenge and at the same time a wonderful task!
