The company was founded in 1911 as a plumbing business in Saxony and has survived two world wars and also the flight from nationalisation in the GDR during the last 100 years. Noch has been dealing with accessories for model railways for 75 years. Initially, the company traded in model railway articles on the side, and later established its own factory, which slowly but steadily developed into the company it is today. We have now been at home in Wangen im Allgäu for 50 years. It is still owner-managed in the 4th generation and currently employs over 80 people.
In the 100-year company and product history, you will find many technical innovations and products that revolutionised model landscaping. The best examples are the deep-drawn prefabricated terrain in 1961, the first electrostatically flocked grass mat in 1963, super-realistic hard foam portals from 1983 and the Grass Master, which has been providing perfect grassing for everyone since 2005. In its anniversary year, Noch also ventured into the field of modern technology and innovative production methods: The new laser-cut building models mark the turning point for modern building model construction. It is not surprising that decisive innovations in this field come from Noch of all companies: The first model buildings were handmade at Noch as early as 1949.
