Marantec is an acronym for Marienfelder Antriebstechnik (lit. "Marienfeld Operator Technology"). Over the past 30 years, Marantec has become a well-known name around the world and is associated with the highest quality "made in Germany". 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 operator technology in Marienfeld, Eastern Westphalia. He founded Marantec based out of an operator 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 operator technology since 1957.
Since then, we have been developing and producing innovative operators 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 – for both the private and commercial sectors.
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. Our operator solutions facilitate and enrich the lives of our customers in many ways. At the same time, our products impress with their appealing design.
Those who trust their roots are open to new things. Marantec looks back on a strong tradition as a family-run company and has repeatedly broken new ground over the course of the past years and decades.
In the 1990s, for example, the Marantec Group was formed - a strong, constantly expanding group of companies. As parts of the Marantec Group, especially Marantec in Marienfeld and MFZOvitor in Legden, a company specializing in industrial operator solutions, have grown closer and closer together: finally, the MFZOvitor brand also became Marantec in 2022. #together
