The name Fritzmeier stands for progress since 1926. Founded as a saddlery, the company helped farmers to achieve more comfort at work with a full-suspension tractor seat and the first tarpaulin cover. Another revolutionary step was taken in the sixties with the development of the safety bar for tractors.
