Company history

Every successful company’s story starts with a brave decision. Hans Fleischmann made this decision in 1982. He laid the cornerstone for a success story that endures to this day. There have been many highlights – Inclusion in the list of Digital Champions in Bavaria in 2017 is one of the most recent.
