Dimitri Baumgartner has been a car enthusiast since he was a child. His family says that he said the word "car" before "mom" or "dad". As a teenager, he stowed his small toy cars and began to collect 1:43 scale model cars with his pocket money. The selection was often difficult because he could never get enough.
A collection, a career
After completing his education, Dimitri started his career with a major Swiss technical toy retailer, working exclusively with major brands such as Norev, Ixo, Eligor and Spark. To the delight of many collectors, he was able to combine his passion with his profession.
He then became an advisor to Editions Atlas to develop model collections for the Nordic countries. Due to the great success he was hired by Editions Atlas as "New Product Development Manager" to develop more collections for international collectors. Especially the collections "Volvo" or "Saab" achieved a huge commercial success throughout Europe.
In his private life, Dimitri and his partner Frédéric are not only collectors of model cars, but also 1: 1 cars. Their collection consists of various Saab, Volvo and other European cult models such as the Citroen Dyane or the NSU Ro80.
A passion for new developments
With his experience and expertise, Dimitri is now launching his own miniature car brand. The Dimini company offers new variants and designs of models that were previously developed by Dimitri, as well as complete market innovations made of metal or synthetic resin - always in limited editions.
The first 1 43 1 models will be soon followed by 18: XNUMX models.
The company is proud to introduce the first model now. An atypical car with an even more amazing feature: the Saab 900, which is equipped with the living cabin Toppola.
The Dimini brand is distributed from Belgium through the Saab FarmTeam providing its comprehensive logistics and warehouse experience.
The models are available at specialty stores and at dealerships with accessories for Volvo and Saab.
