Originally named Icemaster GmbH, the company began by producing mobile refrigeration systems. From this technology base the company began to develop the world’s first 100% water-cooled marine generator in co-operation with the BMW marine division. Coupled with a voltage control system (VCS) – this led to the Fischer Panda Generator.

With a reputation for being comparably compact, light, silent and reliable – the generators are much in demand within a wide range of marine and vehicle application, in fact wherever high quality mobile power is required. Many Formula One teams and renowned boat builders are long time customers of Fischer Panda.

The first generators for military use were available in the mid 1990s as part of a modular “commercial off the shelf” (COTS) range for shelter and trailer applications. After Fischer Panda perfected tunnel technology in 1999, generators designed specifically for the military appeared in the range. An example is the DC PE150 series, perfect for automatically maintaining battery systems onboard AFVs.  A further development was the Combo system,  featuring an AC generator and high efficiency ECU for installation in a dedicated shelter tunnel.  Stand alone ECU designed for military conditions are also in the range.  The technology is continually being improved and developed upon and the latest models feature variable speed constant frequency technology in a compact, quiet and lightweight design.  This permanent magnet system has been comprehensively tested to a wide range of MIL Standards in the USA.  All larger generators are capable of  being connected together to form parallel systems with options for load switching and load sharing.

In 2007 the company was renamed Fischer Panda GmbH to strengthen the corporate link with the well known Panda generator brand. The export sales are at 80% in 2007 and turnover doubled from 2005 to 2007. More than 80 people are employed at the Paderborn company headquarters in  Germany and over 400 are active worldwide.
