The following is from the Steinbach website. It will help you to understand the company history. "The complete name of the Steinbach company is Steinbach GmbH - Vereinigte Werkstaetten Deutscher Volkskunst. It has two production plants that produce the wonderful Steinbach nutcrackers. The older plant is located in Hohenhameln, a little town in northern Germany. Originally the Steinbach company comes from the Erzgebirge but left the region because it was under Soviet control after WW2. Right after the end of Communism in Europe Christian Steinbach had built his second factory in Marienberg. Marienberg is a small town in the heart of the Erzgebirge"
