With the launch in 1982 of the CBOX, a storage system for music cassettes in cars, Prof. Klaus Fischer ventured into the automobile industry. Today, fischer Automotive is the second largest business division of the fischer Group of Companies. The subsidiary, established in 2001, develops kinematic systems for car interiors.
The product range includes ventilation nozzles, cup holders, storage compartments or multi-functional components which help to keep the car interior clean and tidy. The fischer Automotive business division is dedicated to ultimate product quality and delivers the latest in production technology at its locations in Germany (Horb), the Czech Republic (Ivanovice), China (Taicang) and in the USA (Auburn Hills).
Excellent material and injection moulding competence, the highly acclaimed production and process system, and outstanding kinematic solutions make fischer Automotive a sought-after development and production partner of all renowned car makers. In 2008, the Horb site received the Automotive Lean Production Award in the category “Nationaler Mittelstand” (National SMBs) for efficient processes, inclusion and training of staff and workforce, and the personal commitment of the company’s owner and CEO Prof. Klaus Fischer.
