About Us

More than 100 years have passed since the Karl Fischer company has been founded in Pforzheim. For four generations now Karl Fischer has been in the hand of always the same familiy, thus being one of the oldest enterprises in this field.

Until the total destruction in February 1945 the main job of Messrs. Fischer Pforzheim had been the supply of tools and all kind of materials necessary in the workshops and companies of the gold- and silversmith`s trade in Pforzheim, thus the name "Werkzeug-Fischer" soon became well-known all over this region.

During the first years after world war II our utmost attention was directed to the reconstruction of a new sales building, which finally could be completed in autumn 1954. A time of temporary and restricted circumstances had been overcome. The new building had been errected on the same site, Berliner Straße 18, where a lot of new tasks were now be waiting to be fulfilled to the best of our abilities. It did not take long until our business activities expanded far beyond the bounds of Pforzheim, so to say worldwide. Within a few years only the recognized and experienced house of international renown developed to a powerful and competitive saleshouse for the needs of goldsmiths and jewellers.
