Wm. K Walthers will no longer exclusively distribute Märklin GmbH products in North America, beginning Jan. 1.

Märklin plans to expand its distribution network in the North American market. Walthers will, however, remain a key distribution partner, according to an Aug. 6 announcement.

“We are proud of the role that we have played over the last six years in helping Märklin to increase and strengthen the brand awareness of Märklin, LGB, and Trix in the North American market,” Walthers President J. Philip Walthers said. “We look forward to a continued strong partnership with Märklin as they expand their distribution network in North America.”

Walthers will continue providing authorized dealers and modelers with Märklin, Trix and LGB model railroad products in all scales.

“We have appreciated the support and partnership provided by Walthers over the years of the exclusive distribution agreement and look forward to continuing to work together to promote the growth of the LGB, Märklin, and Trix Brands in North America,” said Florian Sieber, Managing Director of Märklin GmbH
