mts started its business activity in Mengen, Germany, early in 1996, as a producer for stacking towers for automation. With our engineering know-how we gained the customers’ trust of the car manafacturers in Europe and made a name for ourselves on the market that stands for high quality and innovative products.
Increasing sales successes allowed us to invest in modern production technologies and expand. Today we have overall 130 employees in the two locations in Mengen, Germany and in Chesterfield (Michigan, U.S.). We employ 18 people in our development department.
A few years after start-up, our customers’ demands on our product portfolio changed. In order to fulfill them, we restructured the company from being a mere supplier of stacking columns into a general contractor for load carriers. As an additional product group we develop and produce buffers, turn tables and carts for body shops.
In 2003, we added textile machines for fabrics to our product range. Today we produce in this segment take off lumes and inspection machines.
Our high quality standard refers to the requirements our long-standing customers of the automobile, automation and textile industry. We had this quality independently tested and certified for the first time in as early as 1999. Our strict quality and customer orientation – in development, manufacturing and in after-sales service – was and still is our guiding principle.
This also shapes the training of next-generation personnel, to which we have been intensively committing ourselves for years.
The success makes it a duty for us to take up and master the future challenges, particularly those of the global market. In the US we have a great subsidiary. With success mts north america Inc. , Chesterfield, looks after the US market for racks with stacking columns.
