40 years Fischer Panda
This year, Fischer Panda, with headquarters in Paderborn/Germany, celebrates its 40th birthday - proof for the managing directors Dr. Hans Joachim Herbermann and Stephan Backes that "the customers appreciate our quality and innovative products."
The company was founded in 1977 under the name Icemaster GmbH. Development and production of sound-insulated generators for mobile on-board power supply began in 1986.
In 1988, the company took over the brand rights of the company Fischer Generatoren from Passau. The new brand Fischer Panda was created. The company was renamed to Fischer Panda GmbH in 2007. Thanks to the continual generator development, the company has been able to record steady growth. Today, Fischer Panda is one of the world's leading suppliers of particularly quiet and compact generators for leisure marine and vehicle applications.
We have gradually expanded our global dealer network and have successfully cooperated with our independent agencies in the USA and UK for 20 years. In 2009, a Fischer Panda Representation Office was opened in Beijing, serving the Chinese market as well as Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Another Rep Office was opened in Singapore in 2015 with responsibility for the South East Asian market - sales figures of the last two years have already been considerable. Fischer Panda now has dealers and service stations in 80 countries around the world and expansion is continuing.
The heart of Fischer Panda GmbH is located in Paderborn. All decisions are made there concerning product development, organisation of both sales and production, international logistics arrangements and customer services. Prototypes are built and constructed; existing products are also improved.
Since mid-2010, the company has been certified according to DIN ISO 9001: 2008; customer service and quality management are the company's first priority.
Additionally, new products are also developed and produced. Besides their generators, Fischer Panda has manufactured electric drive systems under the brand Whisperprop since 1997. Having started with 10 kW and 20 kW drive systems, a 50 kW drive system is currently being designed.
Panda also reached a milestone with the development of their inverter
generators with load-dependent variable speed control. Today, the inverter
generators cover a power range from 4 - 120 kW.
2016, Fischer Panda launched their Panda 5000i.Neo generator - the smallest,
lightest and quietest marine generator in its performance class. This generator
contains a diesel engine designed by Fischer Panda, the FP 320. This 1-cylinder
engine is 100 % water-cooled.
Currently, the first marine generator with constant speed, the Panda 4000s, is also being fitted with this new engine.
Fischer Panda is working on generators with this engine for vehicle applications, too.
With an exceptional development potential and an international reputation as an innovative and powerful partner for mobile power supply, there is no doubt that Fischer Panda GmbH will continue to grow in the future. The company is looking forward to exciting tasks and challenges over the next 40 years
