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.

located in Passau. This company co-operated with the internationally

Panda". Fischer Panda is still, by far, the leading manufacturer of
sound-insulated generators that produce an electrical power source for
boat and vehicles.
