Mehanotehnika was founded in 1952 in order to produce toys for the Yugoslavian market. The main plant, located in Izola, Slovenia, was opened in 1959. The company mainly became known because of its model railways, but also manufactured learning toys, toy telephones and typewriters, and plastic toy cars in various scales. The cars did not always have the manufacturer's name stamped on the baseplate and were often copies of Western European products, e.g. by Schuco from Germany or Fabian from Italy. Furthermore, Mehanotehnika Izola manufactured copies of Norev diecast models from the "Mini Jet" series in about 1/66th scale. In 1990, the company was renamed to Mehano. Although the company applied for closure in 2008, Mehano is still in business today, concentrating its output on model railways and electronic learning toys.
