Innovation is our Tradition
When on July 4th, 1960 Josef Fortmeier established his enterprise in a former cow barn, he did not suspect, that his company for special machines, hydraulical cylinders and hand pumps becomes one of the leading enterprises for smoke and heat ventilation systems and daily ventilation technology. Meticulousness, motivation and know-how have been the engine for a dynamical development, which continues today and is alwayd oriented to the state of the art.
