Road Name History:
Staatl. Fachingen (full name: Staatlich Fachingen) is a German medicinal and mineral water discovered in 1740, first sold in jars in 1746, and later bottled starting in 1870.[4] Due to its relatively high content of hydrogen carbonate, it can neutralize excessive acid in the stomach. The spring is located in Lahn valley north of Wiesbaden, close to the eastern boundary of Nassau natural preserve.

The company is headquartered in Fachingen/Lahn and has been part of Mineralbrunnen Überkingen-Teinach AG since 1990. Staatlich indicates that the spring was state-owned until this 1990 sale (previous owner: Rhineland-Palatinate). In 2001, Karlsberg acquired controlling interest in the Mineralbrunnen Überkingen-Teinach company from Nestlé, including Afri-Cola and the mineral water brands Staatlich Fachingen and Hirschquelle.

Since 2008, Staatl. Fachingen has also been selling flavored water products.German market share of the company was about 28% in 2004.From Wikipedia

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.
