Bachmann was founded in 1833, but didn't get into trains until after World War Two. Bachmann is a brand name of Kader Industries of Hong Kong, China. Kader bought Bachmann in 1981.

Kader was formed in 1948, and began manufacturing products for Bachmann in 1969. Kader also owns Williams Trains, Lilliput and Graham Farnish. Kader offers N, HO, O and Large Scale trains. Kader also took over Sanda Kan from JP Morgan in 2008, a major contract manufacturer of model railroad equipment. Sanda Kan owned the K-Line brand of O scale trains, which they licenced to Lionel.

Sanda Kan drastically scaled back their activities as an OEM in 2010, leaving many well known brands scrambling to find new suppliers.

Bachmann sells other manufacturers' DCC products under its EZ-Command brand.
