For the 17th of May 2018, the Association of German Manufactories had invited to the awards “Manufactory of the Year” and “Manufactory Product of the Year”. The event took place as part of the 10th Future Forum German Manufactories in the furnace hall of the Poschinger glass factory in Frauenau.
In addition to other very beautiful manufactory products, our weather station 801 was also awarded on this evening. The jury awarded the special prize “Sustainability” to the relaunch of the 1970s FISCHER classic.

We recently did get the following review of our flagship 103PM from Michael Brown [USA]. Needless to say that we were very happy about this review and the thanks:
„I purchased barometer 103pm serial # 3548 from starpath via ambient weather. I have waited many years to obtain a precision aneroid barometer and am pleased to report the instrument is spectacular in accuracy. I find the workmanship to be absolutely fantastic as well.
I wanted to contact you directly to express my thanks for producing such a fine instrument. I am very proud to own it and especially enjoy its design as well as the execution. Well done!
And again, thank you for producing such a fine instrument. Superior workmanship and design seems ever rarer in this world of mere consumables.
Please communicate my delight to your workers…they deserve praise for doing such a fine job. Again, thank you!!!“
Last year’s participation in the METSTRADE in Amsterdam had not only exceeded our expectations, it was simply a great experience. Reason enough to present proven and new products to the decision makers of the water sports industry also in 2017 at “THE WORLD’S LARGEST MARINE EQUIPMENT TRADE SHOW”.
The FISCHER instruments will be presented at the booth 07.537.

The exhibition “Handmade in Germany” shows masterpieces from 180 German manufacturers, artisans and designers. The international exhibition brings together a concentrated collection of contemporary quality production from Germany: precious and special things, which are manufactured in Germany, mainly by hand. FISCHER‘s precision mechanics and hand-made measuring instruments are also part of this exhibition.
“There is no bad weather – only bad preparation”. Under this fitting statement Best Made Resources Ltd. [US] introduced in 2017 a Compact Weather Station, manufactured by FISCHER. Polished brass and a black faceplate lend to the product a special handsomeness.
The manufacture of fine mechanical measurement instruments requires precision and solid technical skills. Virtually all product components are manufactured and assembled in-house. The short movie gives you an idea of our craftsmanship.
For years the ecofort GmbH Nidau (CH) familiar on the synthetic hair hygrometer from FISCHER. Now this hygrometer is used for the conservation of West African desert crocodiles:
The ecofort GmbH supports the efforts of Michel Ansermet (research associate of Aquatis, the formerly Vivrarium de Lausanne) to preserve the West African desert crocodiles from extinction. In Europe there are only 3 such crocos, in Lausanne is the only couple. While there were 1946 in Africa more than one million of them, today only 1,500 to 3,000 of these animals are counted.
