The Swedish company Galanite was founded in 1947 by two immigrants from Denmark, Louis Hawaleska and Borje Hansen. They produced all kinds of plastic parts, but in the course of time toy cars became the mainstay of the company. In the late 1960s and in the 1970s, Galanite manufactured a series of cars in about 1/43rd scale and trucks in a slightly smaller scale, made of soft plastic (vinyl) in the style of the successful Tomte products. In the range, Swedish vehicles such as Volvo and Saab cars as well as Scania trucks were predominating, but Galanite also modelled foreign cars such as VW Beetle and Golf, Austin Mini and several Mercedes-Benz cars. Some plastic models in bigger scales were also made, mostly with less realistic proportions. The company went into liquidation in 1979.
