Lindner & Fischer Fahrzeugbau GmbH was founded in 1988. Up to that point in time, both managing directors and shareholders had been employees of the Stadler tanker company in Neu-Ulm. The Stadler company ceased production early in 1988. It was therefore possible to take over all the equipment necessary for tank and vehicle construction.
The necessary company grounds were found in Langenau, which were initially rented and finally purchased in 1990. Business was begun with 10 employees, all from the former “Stadler” workforce.
In 1992, new construction of an additional production hall was planned and was moved into in 1993. All containers were manufactured in this hall from 1993 until the end of 1997.
In 1994, the first branch office was subsequently founded in Seefeld (near Berlin) as an independent, one hundred per cent subsidiary of Lindner & Fischer Fahrzeugbau GmbH, Langenau under the name of Lindner & Fischer Fahrzeugbau und Service GmbH.
From 1994 to 1998, a building with workshop halls was rented for operations at the bulk storage tank warehouse in Seefeld. In 1997, a new construction was planned, which was begun in the newly developed industrial area late in 1997. The new workshop complex with administrative buildings was occupied in May 1998.
The decision was likewise made in 1994 to open a branch in the north. Lindner & Fischer Nord, Fahrzeugbau GmbH therefore emerged, which was opened on 2nd November 1996 following a new construction in the industrial area in Fallingbostel and was also operated as an independent one hundred per cent subsidiary of Lindner & Fischer Fahrzeugbau GmbH in Langenau.
In August 1996, a further production hall with a plot of land was acquired directly next to the existing production plant in Langenau. Tank construction was subsequently transferred there in 1998.
In 2001, Mr. Jürgen Wilhelm joined the GmbH as a new managing shareholder alongside the present managing shareholders. Herr Wilhelm has been an employee at L&F since 1992 and has headed design since 1996. From the former Kässbohrer staff, Mr. Siegfried Bührle additionally joined Lindner & Fischer Fahrzeugbau GmbH as a managing shareholder in 2002.
Lindner & Fischer were already always good when it came to new products and innovations in the sector of tankers for mineral oil transport.
In this manner, the concept chassis “tank superstructure without a subframe" was introduced and established in the Federal Republic of Germany.
The lowered tank semi-trailer in pressure vessel construction was presented in 1991.
L&F was the first tanker manufacturer to produce the central axle tank trailer for hazardous goods in 1993. This was followed in 1998 by the central axle tank trailer with a total permissible weight of 20.7 to. The central axle tank trailer now numbers among the most frequently sold trailers from the L&F company. In the version with a total permissible weight of 20.7 t, it is the only trailer that achieves this tonnage with 2 axles. Today, we are able to successfully look back over many years of market leadership with our central axle trailers in the Federal Republic of Germany and further extend these products.
