FAKA constructed vehicles and car bodies, but mostly built buses. After the Second World War, the company was re-established in Salzgitter. In 1954, the first complete bus, the “FAKA light bus SK 4.5”, was presented on behalf of the bus operator Willi Hohmann. It was powered by a Henschel diesel engine installed across the rear.

From 1952 Kannenberg continued the production of the Walba scooters with minor changes until around 1957. Kannenberg also manufactured load tricycles and motor rickshaws.

n 1958, FAKA took over the production facilities from Hermann Harmening in Bückeburg . There the production of the HKB club bus developed by Harmening was continued under its own name. However, in 1960 bus production was stopped.

In 1973 FAKA was taken over by the Kögel vehicle works and continued as the Bückeburg plant.
