Company history and description of the company Technofix before bros. Einfalt in Nuremberg, Germany

1922, the GmbH was founded by the brothers Georg and Johann Einfalt in Nuremberg. Mr. Heussinger joined as a partner. Production began with an air game. The frist articles received the number 100. The largest part of the production went abroad. The product range was changed gradually to mechanical products.

From 1946 he was employed under his new name Ernst Fields and got back his ancient rights and died 1955.

. 1978 Alfred Einfalt the eldest son of Georg put to rest, the production was stopped and the machines and tools sold.

Special mention should be made of the clown's portrayals and humorous human figures, but also of many animals and human figures of everyday life, often produced as pairs, connected as a movement game to wind up with a flexible steel strip. So there are Indians, boxers, knights, skaters, birds, pigs, elephants and much more. Very rare, as kept by collectors in their collections, are such quirky specimens as the boxing match between a real boxer and a kangaroo or the little girl on the chamber pot. In its prime days in the years before 1939, the firm employed about 120 workers and employees. The new beginning after the war happened in parallel with the entry of Alfred Einfalt, the son of Georg Einfalt., Who died in 1953. Production after 1945 focused on the production of sheet metal and sheet metal landscapes.
The 70s were characterized by the attempt to stand up to the Far Eastern competition. But even with Gebr. Einfalt Technofix the transition to the plastic age was probably too late. In 1977 the company had to close. After some of the tools and presses were sold to the wholesaler Nova in the 1960s, many other tools were handed over to the Nuremberg mechanic's guild after the factory was closed in 1978. However, a large part of the tools must later have gone to the East and to other European countries.
