The first product
Waldemar Derksen comes up with the idea of selling chrome-plated license plate holders on Ebay when registering his car.
From what was then a simple idea quickly developed into a real business. At times Waldemar Derksen sells more chrome-plated license plate holders than ATU Germany.
Foundation of Albatros International GmbH
The business, which at that time was still part-time, has now developed into a small company and so Waldemar Derksen founded Albatros International GmbH together with his partner Reinhard Neef.
The company moves its headquarters to the neighbouring town of Nerdlen, 10km away.
