Company information

Fleischhauer is one of the leading European manufacturers of tickets, cards and RFID products for identification and access control systems. Specialized know-how in material converting, decades of experience in identification technologies and a core competency in personalization enable reliable products for demanding applications.

Certificates in the fields of quality, security and environment confirm comprehensive efforts to provide our customers in more than 50 countries worldwide with quality products, that comply with high security and environmental standards.

Fleischhauer runs two production facilities in Western Germany, that combine highly-productive capacities, innovate product development, modern printing technology and - last but not least - the enthusiasm of a motivated and qualified team.

With its specialization and long lasting experience, Fleischhauer has become a worldwide respected partner for challenging ticketing and identification products. Tickets and cards “made by Fleischhauer” allow millions of people every day a quick and secure access to mass transportation systems and car parks as well as to fairs, swimming pools and theme parks.

The combination of print products and information transfer has been at the core of Fleischhauer since its foundation in 1869. As printing company for newspapers in its first decades, Fleischhauer dealt with the state-of-the-art communication medium at that time. Later Fleischhauer was one of the first European companies that started to produce punch hole cards – the first machine readable data carrier.

In the end of the 1960s, Fleischhauer produced the first tickets with magnetic stripes for mass transportation systems. Since today, magnetic tickets are used around the world in car parking, toll and transportation systems.

Fleischhauer is the preferred development partner for leading equipment manufacturers. The production of flexible RFID-products for mass transit, access control and identification underscores our mission as being the “first mover in ticketing and identification”. 

As a company of the Halbach Group Fleischhauer is part of a family business with a tradition of more than 175 years. With two production facilities in Western Germany, subsidiaries in Germany and abroad and more than 300 employees the Halbach Group is one of Europe´s largest ticket manufacturers.

Tickets produced with clean solar energy

Fleischhauer contributes to climate protection in 2021 by using regenerative clean solar energy to a total of 250,000 kilowatt hours per year from its own photovoltaic installations. "This corresponds to the energy demand of 50 single-family homes," says Philipp Halbach, General Manager. The two production facilities in Herne and Schwerte are equipped with a total of 3000 photovoltaic modules. This means that Fleischhauer Datenträger is able to cover a significant proportion of the energy required for the production of car park tickets with clean solar energy.

Fleischhauer regards the generation of regenerative energy as being an integral element of an environmental program that combines the consistent recycling of production waste with efficient energy management and use of paper from sustainable forest management.

Philipp Halbach attributes the importance attached to sustainability to the long-term planning horizon of the family-owned company: "We are grateful for more than 185 years of our family-owned business. Like the five generations before us, we are still keen to develop state-of-the-art solutions to meet the expectations of our customers. This also includes investments to improve the ecological performance of our manufacturing processes."
