"Trödler und Co" ("Dawdler and Co") was the Swiss entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 1979, performed by Peter, Sue, Marc, Pfuri, Gorps and Kniri. The song was written by Peter Reber of Peter, Sue and Marc in the German language. The English-language version of the song was entitled "Second Hand Company".

Peter, Sue & Marc represented Switzerland at the Contest on four separate occasions, each time singing in a different language; in 1971 with "Les illusions de nos vingt ans" in French, in 1976 with "Djambo, Djambo" in English, in 1979 with "Trödler und Co" in German and finally in 1981 with "Io senza te" in Italian, a record in Eurovision history.

"Trödler und Co" was performed 8th in the running order on the night of the contest, following Greece's Elpida with "Sokrati" and preceding Germany's Dschinghis Khan with "Dschinghis Khan". It received 60 points, placing 10th in a field of 19.

The song was succeeded as Swiss representative at the 1980 contest by Paola with "Cinéma".
