Marantec is an acronym for Marienfelder Antriebstechnik (lit. "Marienfeld Opener Technology"). Over the past 30 years, Marantec has become a well-known name around the world. Our journey so far has been characterized by openness and collaboration.
Marantec was born in the 80s: In 1989,while a political turning point for the history books was taking place on the world stage, Michael Hörmann was embarking on a new chapter in opener technology in Marienfeld, Eastern Westphalia. He founded Marantec based out of an opener production facility that had previously belonged to the door and gate manufacturer Hörmann – and whose employees had been working and gaining experience in the field of opener technology since 1957.
Since then, we have been developing and producing innovative openers and control systems at our headquarters in East Westphalia, as well as accessory products for all types of doors and gates: Garage doors, Swing and Sliding gates, Industrial doors and gates and Parking barriers.
Today's intelligent and custom solutions are complex. We are masters in this field and offer our customers solutions whose charm lies in their simple and safe use. The fact that intelligent solutions can also have an appealing design is evidenced by numerous awards and our product catalog.
Those who trust in their roots are open to new things. Openness is a challenge that requires strength. As a family-run company, Marantec looks back on a strong tradition. Today, we are represented in 70 countries. As part of the Marantec Company Group, we work together to tackle the challenges of the future.
