Published: March 26, 2013
Following the acquisition of Märklin by Sieber & Sohn GmbH & Co. KG, Wm. K. Walthers announced March 21 that it will continue to serve as the exclusive North American distributor of Märklin, Trix and LGB, providing a full range of product support and services.

“This is very good news, both for Märklin fans and the model railroad industry,” Walthers President J. Philip Walthers said in a press release. “We are very pleased by this development, which will provide long-term stability for Märklin and its popular family of products in all markets.”

Walthers, Inc. was named North American distributor of Märklin products in late 2008, and for LGB in January of 2009.
