TOGU was founded in 1956 by two brothers:
Toni Obermaier and Gust Obermaier
Gust Obermaier had a vision:
He wanted to produce a one-piece ball. No seam lines or glue should be necessary. Today this family run business has grown to provide a secure job to more than 100 people. The complete production is located in Germany on a site of approximately 16.000 m2. All equipment for manufacturing and printing is design in-house and constructed on site. Typical for TOGU is the extraordinary will to put good ideas into effect and to produce goods of exceptional quality.
Prien am Chiemsee is the place where everything got started. Today’s owners Toni and Guido Obermaier (both sons of the founders) have decided to keep the production at their home base. No matter how big the hype about emerging economies might have been in recent years. TOGU will not transfer production just for low labor costs.
TOGU is devoted to innovation, inventions and manufacturing. This might explain why TOGU is one of the leading manufacturers of air filled products made of PVC by rotation molding. Production is according to the strictest environment protection laws. Long lasting products save resources, energy and therefore reduce environmental pollution.
TOGU – quality made in Germany. About 90% of all products offered on our website are manufactured in our headquarters in Prien am Chiemsee in Germany.
Transparency and integrity are important values to us: even the best can not do everything themselves. That’s why we complete our extensive range of self-made articles with products from other quality manufacturers worldwide. We cooperate with all our suppliers in the long term and a trustful way. The origin of these products (trading goods) can be found at the end of each item description.
“Our drive and passion is to develop and manufacture outstanding products in premium quality and excellent functionality.”
