A brief history of Biller of Nuremberg, Germany:
Founder: Johann (Hans) Biller and his wife
History: Johann (Hans) Biller was a former employee of Bing. He took the knowledge that he had learned from Bing and formed Biller on May 2, 1935, with his wife in Nuremberg, Germany. Their first tool and die sets came from the bankruptcy of the prolific penny toy maker Johann Phillip Meïer/Meir. Hans Biller held many patents, and his company specialized in toy trains, train accessories, mechanical and clockwork toys, and tin toy vehicles. Despite the factory being destroyed in WWII, Hans rebuilt Biller and the company continued until new factory methods and higher costs drove them out of business in 1977.
