Pola is a Faller brand for G scale model structures and buildings for garden railroads.
POLA was founded in 1957 by Horst Pollak, a businessman from Schweinfurt. Later the company moved to Rothenhausen / Franken. The 49-year-old founder was killed on April 16th April 1985 in a plane crash near Zell am Ebersberg. Otto Andreas Schrüfer from Munich took over.
The production of model kits started on the first of February 1997, by the Faller brothers, which, however, only took over trademark rights and production, but not land, buildings and workplaces. 30 employees were laid off, the site Rothenhausen was abandoned.
