When Friedrich Fischer in 1883 mastered the technology, which enabled the manufacturing of a perfectly spherical ball, he realized that he possessed the base for industry of ball bearings. With over 130 years of continual growth FAG presents the leader in the production of ball bearings and one of the driving forces of the automotive industry. The top quality of these ball bearings results in the fact that FAG is today an unavoidable partner of all renowned automobile producers. From 2001 FAG became a part of SCHAEFFLER Group. In combination with another brand of SCHAEFFLER Group, Ina, FAG possesses the widest and most competitive catalogue of bearings on the market.
