We celebrate 50 years of mateco

Aiming high since 1973: It has been half a century since mateco was founded in Stuttgart under its former name of "maltech Hebebühnen-Vermietung GmbH & Co. Since then, we have been writing our unique story of growth and success, during the course of which we have been able to strategically expand our branch network as well as the associated fleet of vehicles and attract passionate employees to our teams.

All this has made our company what it is today: the leading rental company of access equipment, whose story is far from over.

Anniversary newspaper

The highlights from 50 years of mateco as e-paper

In the 1970s, when our company was founded, newspapers were among the most important sources of information and entertainment. It is therefore no coincidence that we published an anniversary newspaper to mark our 50th anniversary, which we also make available to you here digitally as an e-paper.

So feel free to leaf through the most important stages of our history, look back on our proudest moments, experience special assignments and projects, and let us also venture a cautious look into the future. As the core of our company, we have of course also given our employees a lot of space in our anniversary newspaper, and you can look forward to hearing their stories and experiences in particular.

What mateco means to our employees

"mateco is for me..." - Yes, what actually? On the occasion of our anniversary, we asked and had this sentence completed by some of our colleagues from the most diverse subsidiaries and areas.

Before you watch their great answers in our video clip, we can already anticipate one thing: The bond with mateco and the shared pride in being part of our company are clearly evident in all of them.

Donation campaign

Together for a good purpose

As a thank you for 50 years of mateco, we have launched a donation campaign in favor of "Herzenswünsche e.V." – a nationwide association which fulfills the wishes of seriously ill children in Germany. This is a continuation of the support we already offered them during the COVID-19-pandemic by making our social working platform "Tappi" available for visits of the clinic clowns from the outside of hospital windows.

As part of our donation campaign, €3 per rental will automatically go to Herzenswünsche e.V. in the period from August to October 2023 – of course without additional costs for our customers. In addition, all mateco employees have the opportunity to make a voluntary donation during the mentioned period.

In this way, our company wants to give something back to society and support Herzenswünsche e.V. in their important work.
