FST was founded on the 01. 10. 1998. The business idea included mainly the processing of high-purity silicon waste and production returns (Wacker, Siltronic) for the manufacture of sputtering targets and Silicon molding.

Over the years, the company FST evolved into a company with a solid place in the machining of brittle materials (Silicon, glass, ceramic) with diamond tools. To continue to occupy a strong position in this market segment, a move to a larger facility was necessary.

Since 2007, we produce in the industrial area “Schwarze Kiefern” near to Halsbrücke. In the context of this expansion new product groups have extended the portfolio such as silicon pipes and boats for the semiconductor industry.

2008-2009 were again extensively expanded the production areas and the machine park and laid the basic for further growth and diversification in the field of glass, ceramic and Silicon.
