Company History

Technology for better building – since 1978

In 1965, as one of the first, the German company Mathis Kalkwerk, owner of the famous dry mortar brand maxit, started to introduce mixing pumps and plastering machines for the processing of pre-mixed construction products. Just a couple of years later the first silo for transporting industrial dry mortar was developed.

To meet the growing demand in machine technology, in 1978 Mathis Kalkwerk founded the m-tec mathis technik gmbh (well known as m-tec), located in the southwest of Germany.

In the following 4 decades, m-tec became the today’s global player as designer and manufacturer of almost any kind of technology in the fast growing dry mortar industry. Today m-tec machinery can be also found in many other bulk solid applications. Numerous foundations of subsidiaries in major markets such as 1993 in Czech Republic and in 2005 in China testify the successful expansion of the company. In all these years, m-tec has confirmed many times its unique ability to innovate. More than 100 patents and utility models and the reputation as leading innovator in technology and as provider of individual system solutions are proof of this. Many technical innovations which m-tec has implemented over the decades can still be considered as milestone both in job site machinery as well as in plant equipment & engineering.

2014, after more than three decades of being part of leading dry mortar producers, m-tec joined one of the world leading companies in the construction machinery industry and one of the top players in China: the Zoomlion group.
