The company Georg Fischer (GF) was founded in 1802 by Johann Conrad Fischer as a small craft business in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. Today, it is a globally operating technology corporation. Here you find a short introduction to the history of GF:

The Corporate Archives of Georg Fischer Ltd were established in 1943, built on holdings that were collected in the 1920’. They include the documents and records of the company since its foundation, a part of the founding family’s estate, as well as holdings of different corporate subsidiaries and acquired companies (i.a. GF in Singen, Maschinenfabrik Rauschenbach, Buss Ltd.).
