Anneliese und Meinhard Kling

The managing director Andreas Kling passed the nationwide master’s examination in
Stuttgart with distinction. With the support of Eva Kling, he developed the "Kling systems"
into the performance-conscious and inexpensive overall package, which can be purchased
today from the specialist dealers.
In the wintertime he produces flowers, weathercocks, witches, birds and dragons which
already decorate a number of houses.
