In 1905, the Compagnie Française des Automobiles de Place, which took the name of G7, launched a call for tenders for a fleet of “automobile coaches” with a view to replacing the 20,000 horse-drawn vehicles circulating in Paris. RENAULT wins the market with the Type AG equipped with an 8 hp twin-cylinder engine. Presented to the „École des mines“ (college of engineers) on September 26, 1905, the vehicle was ordered from this first year in 250 copies. Deliveries begin immediately, and the G7 places a new order for 1000 „taxis“ in 1906, then 1500 in 1908. The AG-1 type offered by HELLER appeared in 1907.
At Heller, we are constantly working to produce our products as sustainable as possible. In recent years, we have therefore taken many measures to increase resource efficiency as much as possible.
Since 2023, we have been producing all Heller model kits with recycled plastic. This gives existing plastic a new life in a great kit while maintaining the same quality.
Instead of packing our sprues in plastic bags, we use tissue paper to transport all components in a clean, protected and environmentally friendly way. Thanks to our seal closure, we do not need shrink film. This also significantly increases the recyclability of our packaging.
We are proud of our large archive of injection moulds. That is why we rework, repair and improve existing moulds instead of throwing them away. Great models are preserved and at the same time a lot of energy and material is saved. That's why we proudly display the year of manufacture of our moulds and the year of the last general overhaul clearly on every product box.
