A Brief History of the Marque

Founded in 1888 by Gustav Hiller.
Up until 1907 the Phanomen Company of Zittan (Germany) had been building just bicycles and motorcycles. In 1907 they produced their first 3-wheeler called the Phanomobil. Versions of this machine were produced for some 20 years, many being sold to both the German and Swedish governments for their postal services.

During WWII they built Granit trucks for the Wehrmacht. At the time there were around 3000 people employed by the factory.

The company is believed to have been acquired by the Meister concern in 1950.
