Pronounced "zar-guess", the legacy of Zarges stretches back nearly as far as Wally Byam's Airstream trailer company, to the company's founding in 1933 by Walther Zarges in Stuttgart. An innovator and entrepreneur, Zarges saw the potential for the application of aluminum outside the airline industry. He built ladders and cases made of aluminum, and nearly 90 years later those products are still the core of Zarges business.
Again, the Airstream parallels are uncanny. After WWII, Zarges saw a major boom, and the company developed a reputation for innovation. Today, the company continues its tradition of quality, craftsmanship, and innovation from their headquarters in Weilheim in Upper Bavaria and three production facilities in Europe.
