I am helping a friend trace his roots.
Is the name FLEISHMAN German
Yes.

It means flesh + man, probably butcher.

or could this family come >from another country?
Yes. [Your "or" is wrong.]

.. because it is also Yiddisch, and the Ashkenaziem used Yiddish/German
familynames for civil use all over Europe, and even far into Asia.
