How we became an electric motor specialist - Our company history

HOW WE BECAME AN ELECTRIC MOTOR SPECIALIST – OUR COMPANY HISTORY

Looking back to the zero hour in 1964.

Since our founding we have been an owner-managed, medium-sized family business. We have achieved our position in the market through reliable, innovative and high-quality work. Our company founder August Fischer started out as a small supplier for the electric motor industry. The manufacture of hand windings was the core business at the time. Ever-increasing knowledge then led to the acceptance of repair orders for electric motors. Step by step, the supplier company became an electric motor specialist – our timeline shows how we at Fischer Elektromotoren became what we are.
