PostSubject: Bullyland has been sold again !!!   Wed Feb 01, 2012 3:29 pm

I just heard that Bullyland has been sold again.

In 2005 Volkmar Klaus, the founder of Bullyland, was 65 years old and sold to Thomas Fischer and some shareholders.

These have now sold to Arthur Ruland, who is the owner of a German trading compagny selling all sorts of stuff like stickers, merchandice, Lego, Nintendo and much more.

The Business Manger at Ruland`s head office tells that they will expand the production of licence products ( I suppose that means things like Disney, Spongebob etc. Shocked )

All in all it doesn`t look like happy news for collectors of the animal models Crying or Very sad

Yes, you are right ! It could be an advantage to have an owner who is better at distribution Very Happy

It will be interesting to see where this goes...

If the new owners care they will hopefully follow this forum and hear from those that love their products/figures and do what they can to keep us all happy! Wink

Susanne, do you know the person who just bought the company? Are you able to be in touch with them?

Thanks for the information.
You are our queen of the Bullyland ~ as well as other brands cheers

Thankyou, Sue, but I am no queen Laughing Laughing
I just have a friend in Germany who sent me a scan of an article in a local paper from the area where Bullyland`s headquater is.

To me it doesn`t sound like the new owner is very interested in model animals, - he wants the compagny to expand away from Schleich, if I read correctly between the lines. Sponge Bob, Cindarella, Little Kittie and such stuff Rolling Eyes geek

I hope they will continue to make their stuff in Germany (or maybe other european countries?); I'm sick of the invasion of "Made in China" labels seen everywhere.

here is the text, translate via computer in english:

Six years after the company's founder V. Klaus the Bullyland GmbH sold to investor Thomas Fischer and other shareholders, gave it to the 27 January 2012 again a change of ownership: Arthur Ruland from Dörrenbach in Rhineland-Palatinate has taken over the Spraitbacher figure of game manufacturers with mould construction in Ronsberg in Bavaria and a sales office in Hong Kong to 100 percent. All 64 employees keep their jobs. Ruland plans to expand the site Spraitbach and plans investments.

Good news, he want to expand.

Hmmm scratch Yes, but the problem is HOW he is going to expand Rolling Eyes

There is no indication that it is on the animal model part of the business, - on the contrary, he wants to focus on the "Licence"-part, especially to avoid competing with Schleich.
In Schleich `s 75 years jubilee-book they write that they quit the licence business, because it was too risky and unstable and because the licences ( licences to Disney etc) are too expensive.

So if Mr Ruland doesn`t want to compete with Schleich, there isn`t much chance of him stressing the part that we are interested in scratch Crying or Very sad

It seems he is going to compete with compagnies like Plastoy etc. instead.

As I see it from Denmark, it is not a very large market. I have never, ever seen one of these Licence-models in Danish toy shops.

How is it in your countries ??????

I've never seen any bullyland in any toy shop I've been to - I've only seen them online.
