Our company history

We started with the import of advertising and promotional items such as inflatable items, bags, backpacks, advertising media, etc. The specialty was and is to this day that all of the 13,000 items that have been realized to date are precisely tailored to customer requirements in terms of colour, shape and material. We offer individuality.


Over the years, sales and packaging items have been added as a further focus of the company, for example jewelry boxes in all shapes and forms, as well as everyday items.

"What doesn't work, doesn't exist" was the motto and it still applies today: we realize your dreams and wishes in accordance with European guidelines and standards.


Due to the increasingly extensive import and production regulations, we have also specified our original range, which encompassed all product and article variants from A to Z, and specialized in selected material areas. The company focuses on the areas of plastic articles, tin / metal and cans as well as nylon and porcelain.


Together with our approximately 32 employees at the Hirschau location in the beautiful Upper Palatinate, we are at your side with our more than 22 years of experience as an import company.


We are supported by our employees in the Far East at the Hong Kong, Shanghai and Shenzhen locations, who monitor and accompany the production processes on site. Of course, we not only work with recognized official testing institutes to guarantee quality and product safety, but we also know our suppliers personally!
