Known as HOB inside the company, Brandstätter played a major role in the development of Playmobil during the 70s, when an oil crisis made the production of solid plastic toys uneconomical. Brandstätter has worked in the field of manufacturing for over 55 years and has no intentions to stop anytime soon, as he considers his work at Playmobil and geobra Brandstätter as his purpose in life.
