Engineering since 1798
With the foundation of the Honsberg brand in 1798, and several other members still before 1900, the history of the FFG group reflects a vast expertise in engineering over centuries. Already then, brands like VDF Boehringer, Modul, Witzig & Frank, Tacchella or Rambaudi were influencing the developments in milling, turning, grinding and gear making technology, and also in their customer industries. This tradition of innovation is being continued, be it in the aerospace industry, where Jobs has recently pioneered in new machining solutions and integrated technologies or in the automotive industry, where MAG is working simultaneously with its customers to advance the productivity and sustainability of engine production.
