With Both Heart and Mind
Without reservation Helmut Fischer transferred his life's work to a foundation, thus ensuring the designated and charitable continuance of his labors. “A foundation makes it possible to marry private corporate success with responsibility to the public,” says Helmut Fischer. As usual, he is supported in this by his spouse, Anni Karola Walther, member of the Foundation Board and someone who, in her own right, has made substantial contributions to the company's success.
A Foundation in Germany, a Foundation in Switzerland
Extending its reach from its development and manufacturing base in Germany, today the Helmut Fischer Group is represented by subsidiaries in over 50 countries. The central headquarters for sales – especially to the Far East – is located in Hünenberg (Canton Zug). And, just as the companies work hand in glove, so do the two Foundations: both are devoted to the same goals and values, which are as multifaceted as the benefactor himself. Because his entire life long, Helmut Fischer has not only been an enterprising businessman but also a driven researcher.
The German Foundation has already conducted a variety of science and youth development projects; in accordance with the wishes of its benefactor, the Helmut Fischer Foundation Switzerland will emulate this success through undertakings that promote science and next-generation researchers.
