MABA – A company goes its way
MABA Spezialmaschinen GmbH is a mechanical engineering company in the Chemical Park Bitterfeld-Wolfen, in the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt
The industrial writer and foreign minister Walter Rathenau founded the first electrochemical plants on behalf of the AEG in 1893. Two years later, the stock company laid its foundation stone for Anilin-Fabrikation in Berlin, or Agfa for short. The building site was favorable, there was a railway line and plenty of lignite. Production began in 1910 and Agfa became the largest film factory in Europe, the second largest in the world. From 1925 it belonged to the IG Farben.
The war hardly harmed the works.
When the wall falls, the Treuhand founded Chemie AG. Up to 8000 former employees of the Combined Now organized in reception companies, begin with the demolition of their companies, in which they have worked for half a life. Only a few parts remain of the film factory. One of them is dhe MABA Spezialmaschinen GmbH (The former centralworkshop, where all machines and systems were designed, manufactured and serviced).
The Filmfabrik Wolfen lives on in MABA and a few other medium-sized companies.
Total investment in MABA itself has exceeded EUR 6 million since 1991.
