The business started by the Heege brothers in a garage in Laubach (GER) where they built their first playground equipment in the early 1970s quickly developed into a story of success. Just a few years later, the first Family Ride, called the Movymat (predecessor of the Skydive) was launched. This was soon followed by the Nautic Jet, the only(!) ride in the world with a free flight phase to date. Inspired by this success, the company developed an outstanding reputation in the industry thanks to its highly qualified employees.
In 2009, it was acquired by globally active Sunkid GmbH from Austria. This increased the sales market and led to an expansion of the product range towards ride components, up to completely new roller-coaster trains. The development of new Family Rides experienced a new dynamic as well. For example, the Sundancer was launched in 2016.
