About us

There's no need to show off, at FGB. However, there would be some success stories to tell. Today, we look back on an eventful past. Since the foundation in 1970 the company with its 160 employees has evolved into a leading company within the market. After modest beginnings, the list of clients today (about 40 years later) reads like the who's who of German and international industry.

As a special machine manufacturer we have always just focused on one thing: Solely, our customers' demands. This commitment has never been compromised. That is particularly, because FGB develops and produces machines for those areas, where satisfying ready-made solutions do not exist.

Our turnkey developments are convincing from the very beginning. That way we create sustainable customer relationships out of new contacts. The loyalty of satisfied clients has always been the greatest competitive advantage. Even if the difference to products of competitors might be small, sometimes. However,  subtleties often decide the success of crucial systems.

We profit from our vast application knowledge, which we gained over many years on the market across a variety of branches. In many cases it is possible to draw an analogy to other areas. That way new ideas arise.

What could evoke more trust than such a wide practical experience? See for yourself, by taking a virtual tour of our website, where you can view individual application examples.
