Friedrich Schleich founded Schleich in Schwäbisch Gmünd in 1935. Today, the company is one of Germany’s largest toy manufacturers and a leading international supplier of realistic animal figures. The famous characters and sets made by schleich® are sold in more than 60 countries and have become a beloved feature in children’s rooms around the world. As a global player with Swabian roots, Schleich GmbH now generates more than half of its turnover outside of its core market in Germany. In 2022, Schleich had a global turnover of EUR 275 million, selling around 40 million animal figures. The company is currently undergoing a comprehensive transformation process to achieve greater sustainability. As a first step, all figurines will be recyclable by 2027. Schleich is also intensively researching recycled materials for the future production of its toys. In addition, Schleich will be optimising and certifying its characters and packaging to the standards of the Cradle to Cradle® circular economy by the end of 2027 to ensure that resources are reused. The company is now majority-owned by the Partners Group, a global private markets investment manager.
