MAAG Extruder History
The history of the MAAG Group thus begins in the late 19th century, with the establishment of Scheer as a metal foundry and machine factory in Stuttgart, Germany, in 1890. Maag Pump Systems was founded in 1913. Automatik Plastics Machinery was founded in 1947. Gala Industries was founded in 1959, and Ettlinger Kunststoffmaschinen in 1983. The youngest member of MAAG Group – Xantec Steuerungs- und EDV-Technik was founded in 1994. Over the decades, they have all grown into experts in the various fields of polymer production and processing.
We are not the MAAG OEM, but we do service their products.
