Wm. K Walthers/Milwaukee
Walthers manufactures several lines of model trains and accessories. The firm is also a distributor and direct seller of model trains and related products from more than 200 manufacturers.
The company has been family-owned since it started in 1932.
86 years is a long time to be in business….certainly for a specialized business such as Wm. K Walters.
The challenge for the next generation leaders is to not only maintain the business….but to grow the market for its products. “I also have high hopes we will crack this nut of figuring out how to get more people involved into this category and make it relevant, and dare I say, cool again.”
Good leadership and business practices will help Walthers reach the 100 yr. mark.
