A blue wonder.

When you walk up the steps of the former front entrance of Märklin’s time-honored headquarters in Göppingen you begin a journey through time. Every door reveals a fascinating view of the individual production stages required to make the legendary metal toys. Unlike other major brand names, Märklin intentionally chose to retain its entire production in Europe. The coveted collectors’ items are manufactured in Györ, Hungary and at the headquarters in the Stuttgarter Straße. Despite the feeling of nostalgia and childhood memories, daily business always remains a matter of finding innovative solutions and streamlining production costs. Because even legends still need to remain competitive. To this day, Märklin remains the market leader for sheet-metal toys.

THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN MÄRKLIN AND SSI SCHAEFER

Historically, Märklin's handmade products were repeatedly damaged during transport between the individual production stages. In particular, the perfectly replicated paintwork suffered from a lack of perfectly fitting containers. Something manufactured with so much love for detail needs to be perfectly protected when moving through production. In light of this, Märklin showed a major demonstration of trust when they chose SSI SCHAEFER to resolve the long-standing and exceptionally expensive problem.

Märklin pilsētas (Vācijā) viesi, lai kur arī dotos, visur apkārt redz zilu kasti.  Šī šķietami parastā kaste ir SSI SCHÄFER un Märklin kopīgā divu gadu darba produkts.  Šī unikālā kaste ir augstas kvalitātes risinājums trauslu produktu transportēšanai ražošanas laikā. Ikviens, kurš izjūt bijību un cieņu pret darbiniekiem, kas ik dienas strādā ar vēsturisko vilciena vagonu miniatūru modeļiem, sapratīs, kāpēc abi projektā iesaistītie uzņēmumi ieguldīja tik daudz laika un darba, lai radītu šo vienkāršo, bet izcilo transportēšanas sistēmu vagoniņuiem. Mūsdienās Märklin produkcijas aprites apjoms ir aptuveni 10 000 zilo kastu. Izturīgā sistēma, kas izstrādāta speciāli Švābijas uzņēmumam, pārvadāšanas laikā stingri notur mazos modeļus. Tas ir risinājums, kas vienlaikus ir arī ērti lietojams.

Following the success story of the blue box, which decreased transport damage costs to almost zero, it was now time for the next chapter: a yellow box with a special fitting system for the steam locomotives. The entire collaboration between SSI SCHAEFER and Märklin reflects one of SSI SCHAEFER’s most important company values: the pragmatic search for a solution that precisely matches the needs for the customer. We utilize solution-oriented technologies to consistently develop innovative products for our customers and our ultimate goal is to create a lasting and sustainable relationship with the customer.
