Due to the high number of employees of approx. 1200 people, 20,000m of rails, 7,000 locomotives, 28,000 wagons and annually 8,000,000 vehicles could be produced. This was accompanied by the introduction of the brand name "Lima Nova" for higher quality models in 1989. Three years after the introduction of the brand name, the manufacturer was taken over by the company "Rivarossi".
Since 2004, Lima and Rivarossi have been part of the "Hornby Group". From 2006, former Lima models and new designs were marketed by Hornby. Marketing under the Lima brand name was discontinued in 2015. However, the models have since been marketed under the Rivarossi brand name.
