The History of Fritzmeier

since 1926

Becoming a High-Tech-Company

Innovation, closeness to customers, and groundedness - these strengths helped Georg Fritzmeier make his saddlery successful quickly, right from its founding in 1926. And these strengths have set their stamp on our company to this day, as step by step we have developed from an artisan shop making seats and the first tarp covers for tractors into a high-tech manufacturer in metal and composites.

 


Today, the Fritzmeier Group works internationally and makes complete driver cabs, system components and parts to meet the evolving challenges of the vehicle and agricultural industries. But some things have not changed – as an owner-operated family company, for generations we have been more innovative, more agile, and closer to customers.
That has set us apart since 1926.
