Fleischhauer runs two production facilities in Western Germany, that combine highly-productive capacities, innovate product development, modern printing technology and - last but not least - the enthusiasm of a motivated and qualified team.

With its specialization and long lasting experience, Fleischhauer has become a worldwide respected partner for challenging ticketing and identification products. Tickets and cards “made by Fleischhauer” allow millions of people every day a quick and secure access to mass transportation systems and car parks as well as to fairs, swimming pools and theme parks.

The combination of print products and information transfer has been at the core of Fleischhauer since its foundation in 1869. As printing company for newspapers in its first decades, Fleischhauer dealt with the state-of-the-art communication medium at that time. Later Fleischhauer was one of the first European companies that started to produce punch hole cards – the first machine readable data carrier.

In the end of the 1960s, Fleischhauer produced the first tickets with magnetic stripes for mass transportation systems. Since today, magnetic tickets are used around the world in car parking, toll and transportation systems.

Fleischhauer is the preferred development partner for leading equipment manufacturers. The production of flexible RFID-products for mass transit, access control and identification underscores our mission as being the “first mover in ticketing and identification”. 

As a company of the Halbach Group Fleischhauer is part of a family business with a tradition of more than 175 years. With two production facilities in Western Germany, subsidiaries in Germany and abroad and more than 300 employees the Halbach Group is one of Europe´s largest ticket manufacturers.
