50 years of Innovation Power and Swiss Quality

It all started back in 1967, when Giuseppe Kaiser, then Chairman of the Board of Directors of Georg Fischer, and Dr. Ulrich Gadient, Member of the Council of States for the Canton Graubünden, served in military service together. It was on a "foggy morning at the edge of the forest" that the two of them came up with the idea of promoting the economy in the mountainous canton of Graubünden.

Four years later, on 1 March 1971, the factory in Seewis started its first production to supply the emerging EFTA markets.

Butterfly Valve 565

The new Butterfly Valve 565 is the best choice for optimizing piping systems built for water applications and a wide range of other applications. This new generation of valves comes at a significantly lower initial cost and will save even more thanks to its lower static weight, requiring less energy for both operation and transportation. Installing the Butterfly Valve 565 is quick and easy, and thanks to its extremely high durability, it will be almost maintenance-free during its long service life.
