History of Modellbau König from Gotha


In 1953 Lothar König started the business next to the iron foundry in the Südstraße Gotha.


Change of Premises:

In 1966 a new factory was built in the Waltershäuser Straße 63, in Gotha.

The present owner Roland König was born in 1959 and learned model building from 1975 and became model building master in 1985. He directed the business with the founder together from 1990-1991.

Since 1992 Roland König directs the business alone.



In 1992-1993 the production area was expanded to compensate for the demands of the industry for larger and complexer parts.

In 2008 the business invested in CNC and Matthias König, the grandson of the founder, born 1985, took over responsibility for this section of the business and also successfully completed his masters exam in 2011.
