Sophisticated products, mature processes, human qualities
The mission of the fischer group
Around the world the fischer group is committed to generating the greatest customer benefit through cooperative product development, a high level of innovation and the highest manufacturing quality. This applies on the one hand to the core areas of longitudinally welded tubes made of stainless steel or other high quality materials as well as components and subassemblies developed from them. Our partnership with customers, suppliers and service providers, is based on fairness and mutual respect - which are of particular importance to us.
The fischer group is the world's leading supplier of longitudinally welded stainless steel tubes and components as well as subassemblies manufactured from them.
fischer in numbers:
more than 2,500 employees worldwide
149,000 tonnes of processed raw material per year
119 million meters (390 million feet) of tubing annually
For more than half a century, the fischer group has dedicated itself to manufacturing tubing. From the very beginning, the fischer design engineers have developed the entire production process and associated machine technology. Over the years, these have been continuously improved to become todays state of the art production equipment.
Further processing of the tubes into sophisticated components or subassemblies has become increasingly important over time. Here, among other things, hydroforming has established itself as a key technology within the fischer group.
Proximity to the customer has always been a priority to fischer. With locations in Germany, Austria, Canada, the U.S.A., Mexico, Uruguay, South Africa and China, the fischer group is internationally positioned and can offer its customers efficient and cost effective solutions.
There are a number of advantages a customer can profit from. The most important aspect is the high level of added value. From tube production to the semi-automated assembly of complex weldments, the fischer group offers you the entire range of services worldwide from a single source.
But besides the hard facts, soft facts also play an important role in our daily business. Above all, a family-style management structure and culture are at the heart of the fischer group. Trust, fairness and a respectful approach are important to us – both internally and externally. This also helps in the fast and flexible development of customized solutions.
