Company history


Founded in Paderborn under the name Icemaster GmbH in 1977


Since 1986 the company has developed extremely quiet generators for onboard power supply to boat and vehicles. When introduced, the generators were significantly smaller, lighter, more effective and quieter than competing products at that time on the market. This laid the foundation for the company to gain a leading position in this field.


In 1988, Fischer Panda GmbH attained the rights from Fischer Generators, located in Passau. This company co-operated with the internationally renowned BMW Marine Division. This gave rise to the new brand, "Fischer Panda". Fischer Panda is still, by far, the leading manufacturer of sound-insulated generators that produce an electrical power source for boat and vehicles.


An additional factory equipped with modern production equipement was built in Poland in 1992 to keep production costs low. This has over 4,000 square metre floor space and 13,000 square metres surrounding area. Over 200 well qualified tradesmen, engineers and technicians are employed at this factory fitted with modern machinery working exclusively for Fischer Panda. 


Since 1997, Fischer Panda Inc. is an independent franchise located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. They manage distribution on the American continent. This includes Canada and South America, as well as 150 recognised dealers.
