Origins and development
The company Martin goes back to the year 1958, when electrician and blacksmith Xaver Martin decided to expand his current field of business to include mechanical production.

This forward-looking step, as well as the location of the company headquarters in the Upper Swabian town of Rot an der Rot meant that the young company was able to win the machine manufacturer Liebherr as its first customer.
Relocation and expansion
Founder Xaver Martin led the company for five years before passing leadership on to his son Manfred in 1963. He soon added to the company’s tool resources with a conventional centre lathe. This lathe enabled the manual production of brass bushes in small quantities.

Due to the constantly growing demand for Martin products and thus the urgent need for more capacity, the first production hall was built in the urban district of Mettenberg in 1969.
Expansion and formation into a German GmbH
During the 70s, the range of services was expanded to include the manufacture and assembly of conveyor belts, whereby the manufacture and development of special machinery was the result of cooperation with various design and engineering offices.

The company was renamed to Manfred Martin GmbH in 1982. The production location was developed continuously over the following decades.
Dynamics and growth
In 2010 the production area was expanded to approx. 3500 m2, and all material flows in the company were redesigned and optimised. This was necessary in order to accommodate a new section in the company’s service portfolio.

As a system partner for a leading company in the field of safety engineering, the company has manufactured, assembled and packaged mechanical components for light barrier technology ever since.
Forecasts and future
Today the company is successfully led by Daniel and Herbert Kurz, and along with its 45 employees, is very well regarded as a competent partner for the manufacture of individual components, small and medium-sized lot sizes, as well as sophisticated special parts in mechanical engineering and machining technology.
