A little bit of history…
1961: Setting Up RIWA

Senior manager Fritz Wagener founded RIWA (Fritz Wagener) in 1961, having its home in a Nuremberg in a former
car garage. Starting on March 29th, 1961, the small family-run business manufactured plastic components for the photo industry. Slide frames, ventilators, tiny cog-wheels and many other minute parts. Pretty soon, this production facility was too small to keep up with all the orders pouring in. Fritz Wagener found just the right area in the countryside: construction of the RIWA factory started in Dietenhofen in 1964. The topping-out ceremony was held on July 12th, 1965. By fall, the company moved into the new production facilities with an area of 1000 square meters. It was the same year in which Fritz Wagener took over the company Herpa.

1965: Takeover of the 1949 founded company HERPA®

In its branch in Beilngries, Herpa already produced accessory for model trains and electric racing-car courses. And since Herpa was founded in 1949, we will be celebrating the 50-year anniversary of the company in 1999. The name Herpa set together out of “Hergenröder Patente (patents)”.
But let’s go back to the year 1965. For the time being, production of products for the photo industry was continued in Dietenhofen under the RIWA, and accessory for the model market under the Herpa banner. After the model accessories had grown and were still growing strongly, pushed of course even more by the introduction of the car miniatures in 1978, the company concentrated all its workmanship in this branch and helped Herpa mature into a well-known and respected name in the field of car models. Nowadays for collectors as well as industrial customers Herpa belongs to the first choice in modelcars and since a few years inmodel-airplanes, too.
