FLEISCHMANN model railways for generations
Model trains are a beautiful hobby that brings generations together. It has been a special pleasure for FLEISCHMANN to light up countless children's eyes for nearly 125 years now and to fascinate adults with enormous attention to delicate detailing and precise technology.
From tin toys to the model railway
As early as 1887, Jean Fleischmann founded a company that in the following decade started the production of a large variety of tin toys, such as ships, aircrafts and magnetic swimming animals. In 1910, the company even participated in the World's Fair in Brussels. The high quality of the toys at that time is underlined by the awarding of a gold medal.
FLEISCHMANN sets the highest quality standards
For FLEISCHMANN, quality production plays a key role in the company. Strong values and manual work occupy important positions in the company. Only in this way can the delicately detailed, extremely reliable and outstanding functional miniature models be designed. The comprehensive FLEISCHMANN quality management with internally and externally applied quality assurance measures is constantly concerned that FLEISCHMANN locomotive and wagon owners receive the best possible quality and enjoy their models for a long time. So in this field FLEISCHMANN also is a pioneer in the model railway industry. For example, the FLEISCHMANN plant in Arad was the first factory in the model railway industry to be certified by the German DQS GmbH according to ISO 9001.
