Discontinued Models at a Glance

Innovation is a tradition at FMS. Thanks to your feedback and the continuous testing of our engineering team, FMS optimizes its products or creates new solutions. This creates discontinued models. 

In the following table details can be found on our discontinued products. A one-year discontinuation period applies, which begins with the formal discontinuation date, but don’t worry we always announce these and give you plenty of time. 

FMS products remain in the assortment for at least 10 years from their market introduction.
