About us

Our philosophy

Tradition meets progress

Holistic engineering, production and installation: Förder- und Anlagentechnik GmbH (FAT), founded in 1973, is acting as plant manufacturer worldwide. The medium-sized enterprise focuses on two business divisions: foundry plants as well as power and industrial plants. The German head office is located in Niederfischbach near Siegen. 

Until today FAT is a family firm which places great emphasis on trustful and fair cooperation in terms of both, employees and business partners. This is shown, among other things, in the long-term business relationships and the large number of long-term employees. A flat hierarchy, optimized processes and quick decision-making characterise the internal organisation of the medium-sized enterprise, which makes FAT's customers benefit from the rapid response times. 

FAT's international expansion strategy reveal in constantly increasing demand as well as the continuous extension of the company premises at the German site and a subsidiary in China. Thus new production halls were erected and the office space extended over the years. Already since 1973 FAT is operating internationally. Within Europe as well as in selected countries of the world FAT guarantees local presence by its network of representations which has grown over many years.

In the course of the internationalisation the plant manufacturer opened a selling agency in Beijing and founded a subsidiary in 2003 at this place. Thus a direct customer focus is ensured in the growth market Asia as well.

Scores of national and international customers in different industries benefit from the know-how and the experience of over 40 years company history. FAT is characterised by quality, technological progress with ground-breaking developments and a well thought-out customer service strategy.
