Road Name History:
A British scientist named Mr Murphy who worked for the Dunlop Rubber Company managed to produce natural Latex foam for the very first time in history His innovation dramatically improved the sleep quality and the day-to-day life of millions of people. The Dunlopillo brand was registered in 1926, three years before the company managed to perfect the ground-breaking process used to produce Latex foam. It is thanks to the British scientist that we can now enjoy the comfort of Latex mattresses. He spent a great deal of time and effort, and even resorted to “unorthodox” methods and techniques to develop Latex. So much that he used his wife’s cake mixer in his efforts to make foam out of natural latex. After five years of intensive work he almost accidentally discovered the process for manufacturing Talalay Latex. Even to this day the machines used in the Dunlopillo factories look like huge cake mixers! Dunlopillo Latex foam was used as a replacement for the hard wooden seats in public transport such as trams, trains and trolleybuses. Not long after this, Talalay Latex seats and cockpit pads were also introduced into the aircraft industry.

Brand/Importer Information:
Liliput was founded in 1947 by Walter Buchel in Vienna with six employees, the original company name was "Liliput - R. Cvetkovics und Co.".
The company ran into financial difficulties at the end of the 1980s, and initially the car model manufacturer Herpa appeared as a new partner. However, Herpa's activities were only a short interlude, because in 1992 the British model railway manufacturer Bachmann Europe Plc., a subsidiary of the American Bachmann Industries took over Liliput and transferred production to the parent company, Kader Industrial Company Ltd. to Hong Kong. Since then, Liliput products have been developed and sold by the German branch in Altdorf near Nuremberg.
Due to the various changes in ownership of the company, a distinction is made today between Liliput Vienna, Herpa-Liliput and Liliput-Bachmann when classifying Liliput models over time.
