"We are very pleased that the quality control work done here at Märklin has been confirmed again by TÜV Süd", said CEO Florian Sieber. COO Wolfrad Bächle, active in the Göppingen firm for 29 years, added, "This proves once again that Märklin – rooted in the tradition of the 160 year old firm's history – fulfills the quality control requirements for toys in the present. Quality and service have always been core values of Märklin's operations, as a look at a catalog from 1930 will reveal." There you can read, "The purchase of mechanical metal toys is purely a matter of trust. No doubt, the practicality of the design and the solidity of the construction can be recognized at the time of purchase. The purchaser is referred to the reputation of a brand regarding how well the product works."
The newly certified quality control management system ensures that model trains from Märklin continue to be the product of "decades of experience, outstanding manufacturing equipment, and well trained personnel". Florian Sieber places emphasis in the future "on a high level of engineering know-how, paired with the work of talented hands. Our goal is always to offer our customers solutions of the highest level for the times."
