About the Book 

Diligence, innovativeness, and awareness of tradition are values that have consistently driven change at Georg Fischer Ltd. And these values are reflected in the sophisticated industrial photography that it has practiced with particular care. Well-known photographers such as Jakob Tuggener have provided a superb documentation of life and work in the company over the past hundred years. A careful selection of the photographs in the Corporate Archive was prepared for the exhibition celebrating "100 years of GF at Klostergut Paradies". A century of contemporary history is brought to life with this publication produced in cooperation with Hier und Jetzt Verlag. The book is available in english and in german.
