The details (from wikipedia)


Horst Brandstätter (June 27, 1933 – June 3, 2015) was the owner of the German company Brandstätter Group. The company was founded by Andreas Brandstätter in 1876.

Early life

Horst Brandstätter was born on June 27, 1933 in Zirndorf, Germany.


Brandstätter joined the family firm in 1952. His support of the inventor Hans Beck allowed the company to begin production on what became the popular toy Playmobil, prototypes of which had been developed by Beck at the company. The 1973 oil crisis necessitated the creation of a toy whose production required little solid plastic; he had asked Beck for "the maximum amount of play value for the minimum amount of plastic".


He died on June 3, 2015 in Fürth.
