Fischer Technology, Inc. is a leading specialist in solutions for coating thickness measurement, material analysis, nanoindentation and material testing.
Even in his youth, Helmut Fischer was fascinated by the world of natural sciences. His curiosity, imagination and thirst for knowledge would later drive him to take his first big career step: in 1953, as an enthusiastic 22-year old researcher, Helmut Fischer opens his first business in his hometown of Stuttgart. Quickly recognizing the needs of a burgeoning industrial sector to measure things, he devotes this enterprise to the development and optimization of ultra-sensitive measurement instruments.
