The strength of MAURER today is largely founded on the long tradition of the company. Its history started back in 1876 with Friedrich Maurer in Munich - whose business expanded quickly in this early stage of the most rapid period of industrialization in Germany. In the beginning his craft manufacture focused on the forming of shee metal, but by the late 19th century it had transformed into a full-grown metal factory. In 1925 MAURER moved to the north of Munich – where it still remains today. A the time MAURER had already attracted attention with early stell and bridge constructions.
When Johannes Beutler acquired the company in the 1930s-, it became well known for the construction of airport hangars and gates. By the end of the Second World War a major part of the manufacturing plants had been destructed or dismantled. However in the 1960s, the company restored its former strength: Its specialization in bridge construction proved to be the right path to further growth. Then in 1993 MAURER started to develop and manufacture roller coasters. The next coup followed three years later: After intense research work MAURER established the department of earthquake protection systems. In 1999 factories were founded in Turkey and China and by 2004 additional branches up in Russia, France and India had been set up.
