ABOUT FISCHER SPORTS

Fischer’s vision is to be the winter athlete’s brand of choice through outstanding products, created for everlasting moments and new levels of individual performance. The privately held company employs nearly 2000 individuals who all share a passion for and dedication to winter sports. Fischer Sports GmbH was founded in 1924 in Ried im Innkreis, Austria, where the global headquarter is still located. Manufacturing takes place there and in Ukraine. One Way, a world-famous brand with a special focus on cross-country skiing has likewise been part of Fischer Sports GmbH since May 2018. Löffler, part of the Fischer group, is also headquartered in Ried im Innkreis.
As an Austrian family company, Fischer focuses on social, ecological and economic sustainability.
All buildings at the company headquarters in Ried im Innkreis are heated from the geothermal network. Fischer relies on biomass for ski production. Our waste management concept includes, in addition to the first step of waste avoidance, the part of recycling (plastic and aluminium/metal waste) and the thermal recycling of the remaining waste. All water from processes is fed into a circulation system and reused through internal cleaning. Other examples are sustainable lighting systems, speed-controlled motors in production plants and many more.
The "Kaizen" CIP model in particular ensures ongoing process improvements. In terms of social sustainability, Fischer places particular emphasis on health prevention, training and further education of employees and their safety.
Skiing is our Life
We’ve been in the business of ski making since 1924. Since then, our company has developed into one of the leading brands in the sport. We’ve remained a privately owned family business, and we stand behind our products and winter sports with our heart and soul. This is just as true for our ski division as for our newest division, Fischer hockey.
