About Us

Alfred & W.Fischer Ltd. was founded in the year 1960 by Alfred Fischer. The business activity of the company was the import and whole sale of labels and tags as well as the production of metal piercers on strings.

In the early 70ies tag pins made from nylon and PP replaced more and more metal piercers on strings. For this reason Alfred & W.Fischer started the import of this product line together with tag guns becoming soon the market leader in Austria.
In 1996 i.e. one year after Austria had joined the European Union, Walter Fischer the son of the founder became General Manager of the company. Being a member of the European Union was an interesting challenge which was faced very successfully. First our business activities were extended to our neighbour countries, and very soon we managed to have satisfied customers in nearly all European countries.

In order to be able to offer products whose price-/quality ratio is unbeatable, we entered into partnerships with the most efficient manufacturers in Asia. Thus it was possible to offer Austrian quality at the economic production costs of Asia and to expand our business activities to Africa and America. Although our products are mostly sold to garment manufacturers, more and more pine apple manufacturers in South America and Africa appreciate our tag fasteners for labelling their products.

Of course we take into account the growing importance of natural fibres. Therefore we are also in a position, to serve our customers with tag fasteners made from natural fibres. The asset of our tag fasteners made from natural fibres is the fact, that the labelling and tagging work can be made the same and easy way with a tagging gun, just as fast as the tagging work is done with traditional tag pins.

We trust, that the latest technologies of our tagging and labelling systems together with our almost 50 years of experience are an essential asset for our customers. To be one step ahead, this is much more important in difficult periods of economy like these.
