Graupner becomes Graupner / SJ Gmbh

As announced on Planet-soaring few days ago, and despite some contradictory information denying or confirming that Graupner was in Bankruptcy, Graupner offficially becomes from the 1st of March Graupner / SJ Gmbh. In other words, SJ Propo acquired Graupner, keeping the brand name.

You can read the official announcement on Graupner Website.

The press release insists on the following points:


  • Traditional business models will continue.
  • Continuation of the remote control system HoTT and streamlining of the product range
  • The company headquarters in Kirchheim unter Teck remains
  • Previously sold products is guaranteed
What is not said is that the number of employes goes from 120 to 38 which means lots of people/family impacted, which is sad.
