In den 80er Jahren
Geobra Brandstätter enters a new era with its LECHUZA brand. It’s not long before the high-quality, self-watering planters have become successfully established as the company’s second line of business.
Owner Horst Brandstätter finds a successor to run the business, Andrea Schauer, but he stays on as executive partner and continues to play an entrepreneurial role.
With 531 million Euros in 2012, PLAYMOBIL's global sales to retail achieve a new record. Group volume grows by 5.3% to 591 million Euros. The group of companies, apart from the main manufacturing plant in Dietenhofen in Bavaria, includes additional production facilities in Germany, Malta, the Czech Republic and Spain, twelve PLAYMOBIL sales companies, as well as the production and sales of LECHUZA planters. Worldwide, the Brandstätter Group employs more than 3,700 staff in 2012.
