Today, FISCHER's innovative measurement technology is used worldwide. The company owes its technological leadership to a strong emphasis on research and development: 20 percent of the production plant workforce are employed in this area. But besides curiosity, passion and expertise, breakthrough innovations in any field require a solid financial footing.
Helmut Fischer believes firmly that the areas of science, research and education are not just the pillars of our society, they also deserve to be promoted and made accessible to everyone. This is why, in 2003, the company’s founder and owner turned over the entire corporate assets to the Helmut Fischer Foundation, in accordance with his personal wishes and for the common good.
This act safeguards the designated and charitable continuation of his life's work. Scholarships, research prizes, conferences and collaborations with institutes of higher learning will ensure the furtherance of science and the support of young researchers.
