History

A.S.F. FISCHER B.V. was established in 1945, at the Bloemgracht in Amsterdam, as the Amsterdams Schroeven Fabriek FISCHER. In the period immediately following the Second World War, there was a great demand for fasteners. Initially, a portion of the products sold were manufactured in-house.

 

In 1972, A.S.F. FISCHER B.V. moved from Amsterdam to new premises in Lelystad. Over the years, the company increasingly developed into an importer, wholesaler and concept developer specialising in fasteners.

 

Nowadays A.S.F. FISCHER B.V. primarily supplies its products and concepts to professional builders’ merchants, the timber and panelling trade, the hardware trade, electronics wholesalers, wholesalers in central heating and sanitary fittings as well as to large-scale manufacturers.

Whilst closely observing recent developments in the professional construction field, we have, in the past few years, succeeded in developing and adding to our assortment a wide range of products, brands and concepts.

 

This has in turn led to substantial growth of the business, both in turnover, sales, and staff.

 

We also grew in terms of physical space, with the addition of warehouses in 1995, 2001, 2005 and 2007. In October 2010, a fully automated high bay warehouse was put into operation which processes orders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In 2010, we celebrated the 65-year anniversary of the company. A.S.F. FISCHER B.V. is proud of its successful history and looks forward confidently to the future.
