Company History

With the foundation of the NZG-Modelle GmbH in 1968, a success story started which the two shareholders, Betty Hauer and Gerhard Schmid, were not able to imagine at that time. The first NZG model was designed and launched in still quite confined rooms on the 3rd floor of a furniture store in the Tafelfeldstra�e: the excavator Weserh�tte HW 70 with item number 101.

Soon, the ever expanding demand for high quality NZG models made a relocation to larger facilities necessary. Appropriate premises were found in the Sigmundstra�e 147, the present head office of the company, and were expanded to 3000 m� in 1985.

In 1986, the daughters of the company's founders, Inge Ludwig (n�e Schmid) and Hannelore Hauer, joined the company and took over more responsibility step by step for the further development of the company.  In 2000, Hannelore Hauer decided to sell her part of the company to the family Ludwig. Since middle of 2000, Inge Ludwig and her husband Michael Ludwig, who has also been working for the company since 1988, have been the sole managing partners of NZG-Modelle GmbH.

Since foundation of the company until today, decisions, measures have been taken and activities have been carried out so that NZG can successfully persist on the global model market.  To this day, NZG has developed, produced and delivered more than 700 different model types to more than 80 countries.
