MARO® GmbH was founded in 1978 by Jürgen Mathies. In the beginning, the company was merely a mutual society and management company of patents, legislation, and fixed assets.
Around the year 2000, the demand for high-quality formwork supplies for the preparation of exposed concrete increased. To initially supply the demands of single construction projects, like the ICE train station airport Cologne-Bonn, a small production was developed, which then was steadily elaborated and increased.
As of 2004, MARO® GmbH began to supply dealers of special building materials in Germany, shortly after Switzerland and later Scandinavia and the United Kingdom. Following the death of the founder Jürgen Mathies in 2011, his wife Christiane Mathies and their two sons Philipp and Torsten Mathies took over the operative business of the company. Philipp and Torsten Mathies fare leading the operative business of the company. The twin brothers’ varying biographies have led the company to its special business strategy.
Philipp Mathies became an industrial management assistant, receiving his training at a big German building concern. From the year 2000 and on, he passed through all the hierarchical positions of the business group. The focus was always on the direct contact to the building sites, where far-reaching insights to the requirements and demands of the builders were made possible.
Torsten Mathies studied business information studies and made his career at an international business consultancy, which he left in favor of MARO® as a Senior-Consultant.
The understanding of construction sites and marketing through Philipp Mathies and the continuous improvement of the processes through Torsten Mathies, have made MARO® GmbH to a customer-orientated and reliable supplier in the sector of formwork accessories for exposed concrete. With long-term partnerships with its trading partners, MARO® GmbH has become a renowned name in the creation of premium exposed concrete.
