Founded in 1923, Gescha was a German toy maker located in Nuremberg. They were founded by the brothers Max and Ludwig Schmid and made mostly tinplate toys with plastic parts being added in the early 1960s.

In 1965, they merged with Strenco.

Both brands were taken over by Conrad in 1971, a diecast model maker who had been as a subcontracted supplier to Gescha before.

Conrad used the Gescha name for its own products until the late 1970s, when the whole range of diecast models were marketed only under the Conrad name.
