Fischer sports is an old family owned company, established back in 1924 by Josef Fischer. They mainly produce alpine- and cross country skiis, but little by little Fischer has become a name in the production of equipment for other forms of winter sports. Among others Fischer hockey sticks and blades have become well known trademarks. Fischer is sponsoring some of the top athletes of winter sports. The many years of experience has made Fischer a reliable and acknowledged brand with many loyal customers both among ordinary sportsmen and top athletes.
