70th anniversary: From connectors to connectivity

January 11, 2024 · 1 min read

Dear customers, partners and friends,


It is with pride and joy that we celebrate the 70th anniversary of our family group this year.


In human terms, 70 years is the age of a late and well-deserved retirement; as a company, it’s a sign of loyalty, continuity and sustainability for our people and for you, valued customers, partners and friends who place your trust in us. For our Group in particular, and for the 3rd generation of the founding family who have recently taken over the reins, it’s a time full of dynamism that we want to extend into the decades to come.


Ever since our founder, Walter Werner Fischer, developed the world’s first high-quality sealed circular connector, our people have kept alive that same spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship and excellence to serve the design engineering community worldwide.


Over the past seven decades, we’ve evolved from being a provider of connectors to a global technology group and full-service partner across the entire value chain of connectivity. The high-performance solutions we deploy at the intersection of micromechanics, electronics, embedded software, cloud and AI, meet the needs of essential markets and industries such as medical technology, defense and security, instrumentation, robotics and IoT.


When connectivity is deployed in demanding operating environments and advanced, complex ecosystems, it must be both reliable and innovative. This brings with it a profound sense of responsibility for our technology group, and sets Fischer Connectors and Wearin’ apart from other connectivity solution providers: to reimagine connectivity that creates lasting value in our traditional and new markets.


As we look ahead, we will continue to evolve alongside our customers. But while our customers drive us, our history guides us. We draw inspiration from both our pioneering roots and our customers’ needs to co-create solutions that will shape the future through new synergies and new ideas that we grow together.


It is this community of vision and work that gives meaning to our collaboration, contributing to something greater than ourselves.


Best wishes for the New Year and happy anniversary!


On behalf of the Conextivity Group, Fischer Connectors and Wearin’ teams:


Sabrina Brossard, President of the Board of Directors

Jonathan Brossard, CEO

Peter Fischer, President (Sept. 1999 – May 2023) and Honorary Member of the Board of Directors
