History – since 1888

Over 125 years of excellence in pioneering technology

A history of great ideas and innvoation.

Fuchs – a name synonymous not just with high-quality innovative and outstandingly efficient material handlers, but also with a heritage spanning decades that is characterised by excellence in pioneering technology. As early as in the 1960s, the Fuchs® excavator 301 was one of the biggest-selling and most popular excavators on the market, and in 1975 the company received a patent for the newly developed hydraulic-lift and slewing cab. No wonder, then, that even today the company culture reflects a high degree of innovation.

The company is founded. Johannes Fuchs commences operations, manufacturing agricultural material handlers

The first mini-excavator D1 is unveiled in Frankfurt and is a prize-winner. The German Railways subsequently orders 200 machines to support coal-loading operations tender locomotives

Production commences in Bad Schönborn. The legendary F 301 becomes the world’s most popular excavator, with 15,000 machines in operation

Разработан первый гидравлический экскаватор, он получает  награду «Gute Industrieform» в 1967 году на ярмарке в Ганновере

Запатентована еще одна успешная концепция: первый гидравлический экскаватор и поворотная кабина. Через год выпущен 20 000й экскаватор Fuchs. Гидравлические экскаваторы начинают свое победное шествие.

The versatile crawler crane F 125 is heralded as the last word in innovation for civil engineering. And a special edition of the Fuchs® 712 that is as powerful as it is flexible revolutionises scrap handling, navigating its way from one operation to the next at speeds of up to 62 km/h


The pioneering MHL 350 is launched

The definitive focus on specialist material handlers proves to be the right step in the company’s successful trajectory

First hand experience of Fuchs® can be gained in mid September, during the anniversary celebrations at the company’s head office in Bad Schönborn, Germany
