A company on the road to a smart future

MACO Group portrait 

As an innovative global player, Mayer & Co Beschläge GmbH, known as MACO, sets standards in the window and door hardware market. Intelligent system and security solutions serve demands for future-oriented living. This family business is increasingly engaged in the combination of mechanical and electronic components. As an expert in security and burglary prevention, MACO is well-known in the industry and in great demand as a specialist in retrofitting.

 Founded 70 years ago, MACO has developed into one of the world's largest window and door hardware manufacturers. Now, the company is moving into smart building components, and so it is not surprising that MACO has made the motto "Creating Innovation" a key mission. "We want to move forward with creative solutions and thus revolutionise the industry," says Ewald Marschallinger, Managing Director of Sales and Marketing for the MACO Group.

 New Innovation Centre at the Salzburg site

A sign of this development is, for example, the recently completed Research, Customer and Innovation Centre, which hosts around 100 employees in May 2018. All departments that are directly involved in the development of the product, from development to marketing, moved into this centre. The open-office concept as well as the short distances promotes cooperation. "We see the centre as an architectural investment in the future," stresses Marschallinger.

Expansion in the Sliding product area

In June 2018, MACO took a majority stake in the German company Hautau, a specialist for sliding technology and window automation. This thereby further expands its strategic position and competence as a complete supplier of window, door and lift&slide solutions.

 Worldwide success

Mayer & Co Beschläge GmbH was founded by Lorenz Mayer, the father of today's owner Ernst Mayer. Since 1947, the company has been characterised by permanent growth. At present, MACO produces at five locations and has 15 branches serving over 40 countries worldwide, with the export share being 96 percent. This family business employs more than 2,300 employees. Since 2015, three Managing Directors have been running the business - Guido Felix, Ewald Marschallinger and Ulrich Wagner. The own production share is 96 percent with many of the machines and tools being developed in-house. MACO is also known for its expertise in burglary prevention and surface technology.
