Bachmann Model Trains' first predecessor company was founded in 1833 to manufacture ivory products. Changing with the times. in the early 20th Century using a new product celluloid Bachmann became a leading manufacturer of sunglasses. Injection molding used for sunglasses was adapted for other uses after World War II, including Plasticville model railroad structures. From this base Bachmann Industries continued to diversify into model trains. In 1981 Bachmann was purchased by Kader Industrial of Hong Kong, the World's largest model train manufacturer by volume. Keeping their offices in Philadelphia, PA, Bachmann has used its partnership with Kader to provide craftsmanship at affordable prices. We like the idea of "craftsmanship at affordable prices"!
