In keeping with its positive business performance, MAHA celebrated the high point of this year’s anniversary in style. The last weekend in September was completely dedicated to the theme “50 years of MAHA”! A total of 3,000 guests from 37 countries accepted their invites and celebrated the company's 50th anniversary on its premises over two days.

Haldenwang, 2nd October 2019. You’re only 50 once! With this in mind, the Allgäu-based workshop supplier used the occasion of its notable birthday to organise a large-scale anniversary celebration for customers, partners, suppliers and employees. “When we look back to our humble beginnings, it becomes clear just how far we’ve come. We’re really proud of what we have achieved and want to celebrate this with you,” said Managing Director Stefan Fuchs in his celebratory speech. What began as a two-man operation in 1969 has developed into an internationally successful company over the past 50 years, making MAHA a world market leader in workshop and vehicle testing equipment.

Friends of MAHA were provided with plenty of entertainment during the festivities. Alongside a varied programme of events, including performances by top international artists, guests were able to experience a special tour of the production facilities: a MAHA miniature train took them through the facilities where different stops along the way provided all kinds of interesting insights. Afterwards, culinary delights and music against the stylish backdrop of the festively decorated production hall ensured high spirits before Friday evening finally came to an end with an impressive fireworks display. The following day’s highlight was without question the series of helicopter rides that had been raffled off to MAHA employees beforehand. The lucky winners had the unique opportunity to experience the company’s premises and the surrounding area from a completely different perspective. As well as this, family and friends of employees were able to take a look behind the scenes as part of the MAHA birthday celebrations. Throughout the day, exciting events were put on for young and old and various delicious treats were enjoyed in the most beautiful weather.

“We’ve had two fantastic days here in Haldenwang,” says Stefan Fuchs happily, thanking his numerous guests, some of whom had come all the way from Australia: “Without long-standing, loyal customers, the right partners and suppliers by our side, and last but not least, all of our excellent employees at the main site and worldwide, we would not be where we are today, 50 years later.” An unbelievable 390,000 MAHA products have been delivered to over 150 countries worldwide since the company’s founding and the end is far from being in sight! The managing director announced that the company was already preparing for future developments and that customers could look forward to numerous innovations and improvements. “All this allows me to look forward to the next 50 years of MAHA and to face this future with confidence!”
