FFG's origins go right back to 1872. Firstly sailing ships were built, followed by steamers. As success came, the company grew and with it, the willingness to invest in new pioneering areas of technology.
Modern mechanical engineering for example was the prerequisite for becoming a successful fittingout yard.
It was this highly developed know-how that prompted the order from the German armed forces, who were looking for a partner to service and equip vehicles during the '60s.
Today the company premises covering 30,000 m² on the Flensburger Förde are home to a high-tech company with internationally acknowledged innovative powers in civilian and military fields.
