In 1904 Christian Hausser and his sons Max and Otto founded the HAUSSER company, although it initially was named Müller & Freyer. Starting from 1912 the company was renamed into O&M Hausser. They carried the trade name Elastolin. In the 1930's the company moved to Neustadt bei Coburg. Like all toy producers, they had to stop production in 1943 by order of the NAZI regime and started again in 1947.
