Tool maker became an inventor to found a firm that led the world
After apprenticing at General Electric in Peterborough, Ontario, he went out on his own and developed a process that was soon in demand. At its peak, his company had five plants in the U.S., Canada, and Britain
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Halifax -- An industrial innovator whose mind never seemed to sleep, William (Bill) FISHER created machines that have been used to make everything from monopoly pieces and bicycle gears, to car parts and the blades for jet engines.
A tool maker by trade, Mr. FISHER founded Peterborough, Ontario-based FisherCast Global, previously known as Fisher Gauge, in 1942. Over the next few decades he turned it into an international player specializing in precision die casting, which involves forcing melted metal at high speed into exactly-designed moulds. At its peak, the company had more than 700 employees and five plants in Canada, Britain and the United States.
"He was so passionate about what he did," said his daughter Jane ULRICH.
Mr. FISHER wasn't just passionate about his job. He was a perfectionist, who often got his best ideas in the middle of the night. He never went far from his work. Initially, he lived across the street from the Fisher Gauge plant, and later in a house behind the plant. The installation was just 30 metres from his backdoor, so it wasn't a surprise for employees working the night shift to see him hunched over the drafting table in his office at 3 a.m.
"He would get these brain waves at ungodly hours," Ms. Ulrich said. "His mind was always going."
One of the secrets to his success was an absence of stress. "He didn't worry because he wasn't in it for the money," she said. "He just never dreamed it [the company] would get to the size it did. It was so much bigger than he thought it would become."
He often said that if things didn't work out, he could always get a job again at Canadian General Electric Company (now GE Canada), where he started his career.
Born in England' industrial Midlands, Mr. FISHER fell in love with tools as a child and dreamed of following in his father's footsteps. His father, Fred, was a tool maker first in Britain and later in Canada. In 1923, the family emigrated to Canada and settled in Peterborough, where the elder Mr. FISHER got a job at Westclox, the makers of the Big Ben and Baby Ben alarm clocks.
Bill FISHER's dream came true. He left high school at 15 and apprenticed at General Electric. Earning 15 cents an hour, he learned what he called "the industrial facts of life." Within 10 years he was making gauges and other components for GE equipment destined for the front lines in the Second World War.
Mr. FISHER's first workshop was in an old chicken coop located behind his family home. He then moved his shop into the basement, just metres from his mother's laundry area.
After founding Fisher Gauge, he initially designed and manufactured tools and gauges for other companies in town. Early on, Canadian General Electric asked him to tackle the problem of attaching a disk to a thin shaft. It was just the kind of challenge he liked. His answer was to develop a hot-chamber, die-casting system that joined the two components with injected molten metal to precise tolerances. In the end, the assembly formed the core of an electric watt-hour meter.
By the mid-1950s, the North American meter industry had adopted the process. During the next 20 years, Mr. FISHER travelled the world, selling machines to leading meter companies. He continued to work on developing the process for a wide range of applications. In the late 1950s, both the telephone and automotive industries were looking for metal parts cast in zinc alloy, which led the company to adapt its hot-chamber, die-casting system and produce proprietary zinc alloy.
As Mr. FISHER's business grew, he asked his brothers Frank and Chester, who also apprenticed as tool makers at GE, to join him. (Interestingly, their father also signed on as a tool maker after retiring from Westclox.)
In 1954, Chester took over the management of Fisher Gauge, while Bill focused on what he loved best: finding solutions to problems.
"He was more of an innovator and an inventor," said Greg WALLING, current president of FisherCast Global. "He wasn't a paper pusher."
Mr. FISHER was the first to admit that selling was not his strong point.
"I was the world's worst salesman. I'd just go in and talk technically," he once said. Even so, the approach often worked. "If you can solve the problem for them, they don't care whether you're a salesman or not."
Fisher Gauge saw huge growth with the sale of zinc castings. In 1964, it opened a casting factory in Watertown, New York and the company went on to ship billions of castings for use in everything from car doors and games to window fixtures and telephone cables.
In parallel with the growth of the casting business, Mr. FISHER ventured into the aviation industry. In 1960, General Electric engineers in Massachusetts invited him to help with the machining of jet-engine blades. He came up with a solution in which the blade is encapsulated in zinc, and the capsule allows it to be gripped without damage for machining. The capsule is broken off when machining is complete. Later, when Rolls Royce engineers were struggling to make blades for the first Concorde passenger jet, Mr. FISHER was called to Scotland.
A precise man, Mr. FISHER loved his daily routines. He walked home every day for lunch and would follow his meal with a 30-minute nap, always making sure he did not sleep for a minute more or less.
A modest, unassuming man, Mr. FISHER's only real luxury was his 12-metre cabin cruiser which he loved to tour Georgian Bay in every summer with his wife Shirley. The one trip he never got to do was to take his boat to Florida. Seldom absent for more than a two weeks, he just couldn't pull himself away from his shop for the three weeks required to cruise south on the Intracoastal Waterway.
The last of the FISHER brothers, he retired in 1998. (Chester had died of cancer in 1992, and Frank died from a bee sting at 36.) He himself suffered a series of strokes and then a heart attack. For all that, he moved no further away than the house over the back fence. From there, he would watch FisherCast employees take their coffee breaks. Knowing they had 11-minute breaks, he would time them. If he saw some taking 13 or 14 minutes he would ask that his daughter Jane, who sits on the company's board of directors, talk to their managers about the problem. The company remains family-owned, but professionally managed.
Mr. FISHER received many awards during his career, and in 1986 he received an honorary law degree from Trent University.
William Fredrick FISHER was born on December 18, 1917, in Birmingham, England, and died on March 19, 2008, in Peterborough, Ontario He was 90, and suffered from congestive heart failure. He leaves his wife, Shirley, and his children Paul, Douglas, Susanne and Jane. He also leaves his sister, Eileen, eight grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
