We turn scrap into gold, problems into solutions and customers into fans.

For a while now we have been asking ourselves what we would like to say about us. 

The most important point seems to be how we view our customers: not as a “king”, as some may put it, but rather our equal and our partner.

Why this difference? Because we strive to communicate and work with you on an equal footing and, in an ideal case, build a long-term cooperation with you.

Relationships are built on trust – that is what we want from you. We are ready to earn it, and we are convinced we will succeed. We can accomplish this goal by providing you with the highest quality of work, delivering excellent results, and offering the most optimal and competitive pricing structure.

And by the same token, we can earn your trust , because you can fully rely on us – no ifs or buts – unconditionally, in every aspect of what we do.

The founders and owners:

2003 started as a 3-man operation in the domestic garage, today an internationally successful company with around 160 employees in Alzenau and 60 employees in the U.S.A.

With Julia and Thomas Maier, MAIREC has a strong and balanced dual leadership. Both hold 50% of the company and share responsibility according to their expertise.

A perfect match that has proven itself for 15 years.
