Do you know anything about the name Brütsch?

The brand launched in 1951 to build the knutschkugelig acting Transportation. Schuco but has recalled and brought to the set the item number 450227000 a beautiful to seeing available on the market, which traces a contemporary image as it was once seen on the streets: a Mercedes-Benz 170 V supplies 2 vehicles Brütsch Mopetta from, in which the little Benz takes just piggyback. Good old days: Can you imagine that a S-class charging 2 Smart and brings to the customer?
What exactly was Brütsch for a company?
Whether supported by the pocket money of the father or with their own money, we do not know: Egon Brütsch lived from 1904 to 1988, was the son of a Stuttgart stocking manufacturer and practiced from 1929 to 1931 in the occupation of motorcycle and car racer from. In 1951 he got into the car business and started with the production of small cars with plastic bodies. he had the experience to do so because from 1935 to 1950 he went partly in self-built cars race. His first prototype heard the name hermit, 400 and dwarf. Imagine that you are asked in the club, "hey, what do you drive?" and you answer "a dwarf".
