Children for children

They are known world-wide – dolls made and marketed by Käthe Kruse. The traditional German doll manufacturer is a synonym for German premium handcraftsmanship. This year, the company is celebrating its 130th anniversary. In February, Käthe Kruse was acquired by Hape, an internationally leading producer and supplier of wooden toys. Now, Managing Director Tobias Vorbach is working on the integration of both brands in order to generate important synergies. He talked to European Business Journal about the reasons for the acquisition and the future plans of the group.
