What surprises awaited Russian journalists in Fischer company

A press-tour for journalists from Russian industry media, arranged by German company of Fischer, continued on 15 March in Waldachtal and the Black Forest located in the state of Baden-Württemberg.

As our special correspondent, Alexey Nevsky, reported from the ground, the last day of the press tour turned out to be the busiest and most productive one. It started with a meeting with a director of the plant for the production of chemical anchors, Jurgen Grun, who told about company's future projects in housing construction.

In particular, he told in detail about “Active House” project (not to be confused with a “passive house” - editor’s note), which the company has been developing jointly with three German firms.

Philosophy of this project is that a house should consume less solar energy than it produces with the use of environmentally sustainable sources. The first prototype of such modular house has already been assembled in Stuttgart.

The next destination on the journalists’ agenda involved a visit to the company’s Academy, where the first big surprise was prepared for the Russians. The matter is that since recently, the Olympic tennis champion Yevgeny Kafelnikov has become the personification of the basic principles of Fischer group.

It was him who taught a number of master classes for journalists at the Academy on the subject of the use of professional construction fasteners.

This training center operates on a regular basis and teaches the practical application of fastener systems to more than 3.5 thousand mounters per year. During the demonstration of the fastener systems’ capabilities, new products were being shown.

For example, journalists were being demonstrated the technology of underwater exploitation of chemical anchors, that is now possessed by Fischer company only.

After that, the Russians were provided an opportunity to talk with representatives of FischerTechnik division. They told about the production of construction sets used as a training tool. The motto of this direction is “Understand technology while playing!”.

This direction was established as early as 1965 by Arthur Fischer. At present, FischerTechnik is applied in schools, universities, and training centers. It is recommended for children aged over 5 years.

It should be noted that the company carries out work with children and students on a regular basis. So, since 2015, its leadership has been awarded with an annual prize for outstanding theses for obtaining the degrees of bachelor and master.

The company’s logistics center, which was visited by journalists next, impressed with its scope and automation. Having invested 5 million euro in logistics, the company managed to reduce the warehouse area and increase the speed of processing and delivery of products to customers.

The next destination within the framework of the press tour was a factory producing automotive systems. The facility, built in 2001, is the second largest business unit of Fischer group of companies and it manufactures components for famous car brands. At the end of the day, the second surprise awaited Russian journalists in Jung riding school runned by a three-time Olympic champion in equestrian eventing Michael Jung.

Over the course of three days of the press tour, the head of the department for corporate communications of Fischer Group, Wolfgang Pott, rendered an assistance to Russian journalists in obtaining information.
