1924 | THE FOUNDING OF THE COMPANY
In 1924 Josef Fischer Senior begins making handcarts, sledges and some few skis in a wooden barn. Ninety years later Fischer is a global group of companies. To this very day Fischer has retained its identity as a family business, successful on an international scale through a symbiosis of tradition, pioneering and high-tech.
1959 | A NEW GENERATION
Josef Fischer Senior dies of a heart attack. He leaves behind him one of the biggest ski companies in the world. Josef Fischer Junior and his sister, Selma Sturmberger, now run the company.
1976 | THE NATION'S HERO
Franz Klammer (AUT) takes the gold medal in the Olympic downhill in Innsbruck (AUT) with Fischer C4 skis. He masters the difficult run down the Patscherkofel in the marvelous time of 1:45.73.
1979 | CROWN GRINDING
With the invention of Crown grinding, Fischer makes a breakthrough in what are known as waxless skis. The days of integrated skin strips as a climbing aid are gone.
1984 | NEW TECHNOLOGIES
Josef Fischer sets new standards in ski making with the introduction of a revolutionary production technology. The VACUUM method creates a homogenous ski body in which ski forces can flow softly into each other. In cross country, it is the COMPOSITE CORE (lightweight core) that makes it possible to build the lightest cross country ski in the world. Reinforcing elements developed especially by Fischer that take up only 20% of the space available enable series production for the new lightweight ski. This is the dawn of the lightweight era in cross country skiing.
