Focus Money awards fischertechnik as "test winner"
We have now been awarded for the second time by Focus Money for our sustainable commitment. Together with the analysis and consulting company ServiceValue, Focus Money had collected a total of over 500,000 evaluations at the beginning of 2021. The results of the survey earned us the title of "test winner".
The award is based on a survey in which around 1,700 companies from 134 sectors had their say. The survey revealed which manufacturers are perceived as being particularly responsible in economic, ecological and social terms. fischertechnik was rated the test winner in the "Toy Manufacturer" category and is therefore the winner of Focus Money's "Sustainable Commitment" award.
Our company is based in the northern Black Forest and is still one of the few in the industry that produces in Germany. We invest in the quality of our products and in high-quality accompanying materials. The construction blocks have been combinable with each other since their market launch in 1965 and are praised by fans for their particularly high stability. Even metre-high structures hold with the famous fischertechnik building blocks. The sustainability aspect is also particularly high with the fischerTiP creative material launched on the market in 1998: the colourful fischerTiPs are made of potato starch and food colouring and are therefore completely safe to use. The corresponding tools for conjuring up great figures and models from the TiPs - moistened with water - are made of resource-saving bioplastic.
