Only three words for our long company history

The year 1872 marks our beginnings. The newly formed Flensburger Schiffbau Gesellschaft (FSG) has been building sailing ships for just one year before the first steamboat was laid down. Not only did the company grow with this success, but also the desire to invest in new technologies for future business success. Special focus was placed on reliable machinery, as it forms the basis for any successful shipyard. And this paid off: when the German Army was looking for a partner for the servicing of vehicles and equipment in the 60s, the company was able to win them over with its highly-developed know-how and years of experience. FFG was founded in 1980 from the tracked vehicle division of the company, thus laying the foundations for independent development.

Today, FFG is an international high-tech company that sets new standards with innovations in both the civil and military fields. From Flensburg WARAN armoured vehicles go to Australia, M113s to Denmark, armoured recovery vehicles to Chile and spare parts to Canada. The M60 armoured bridge layers come from US stock to Flensburg for maintenance and overhaul. The WiSENT is used in Afghanistan and elephant flushing vehicles do good clean work in Turkey.

In brief: clients from over 40 countries have been satisfied customers and partners with FFG for many years.
