About us

Innovations in ticketing and identification technologies have characterized the history of Fleischhauer.

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.
