GF brand was founded by Johan Conrad Fischer in 1802 in Switzerland.
In 2008, SAF-HOLLAND aquired Georg Fischer Verkehrstechnik, a leading supplier to the commercial vehicle industry, expanding its product range with GF fifth wheels couplings, swivel blocks and other goods in different branches.
Georg Fischer Verkehrstechnik GmbH produces and sells fifth wheels and TRILEX wheels for the commercial vehicle sector. The sale of Georg Fischer Verkehrstechnik to the SAF-HOLLAND Group and the continuation of the company’s activities has been a good, long-term solution for both parties. Georg Fischer Verkehrstechnik has benefited from a worldwide market presence in a new and expanded environment, working together with the experienced partner such as SAF-HOLLAND. Through its takeover of Georg Fischer Verkehrstechnik, the SAF-HOLLAND Group has gained matching products and additional market share and reinforced its strong position especially in Europe and the USA.Back return
