The cornerstone of the company was laid back in 1925 in the South Baden town of Kehl-Goldscheuer. At that time, circular bone saws, knife sharpeners and machine for crushing ice were built. However, today's company was officially founded only in 1955.
Nowadays, MAJA is an ultra-modern, medium-sized family company with customers and partners all over the world.
The company - currently employing about 160 people - has now reached its third generation and is run by the brothers Reinhard and Joachim Schill, who control the marketing and technology divisions. They are supported by the managing director Berthold Gassmann, who takes responsibility for signing on behalf of MAJA-Maschinen's worldwide sales operation.
Thanks to the know-how gleaned from butchers' shops, the founders of the company developed patented processes for the de-rinding of meat parts, as well as MAJA's automatic fine ice machine system, which today enjoys world renown.
To begin with, MAJA's activities were concentrated in the area of meat-processing operations. Nowadays, the fishing, bread and confectionery industries, as well as the catering trade and supermarkets, are also major elements.
Over 80.000 MAJA machines have now been installed worldwide!
MAJA is renowned for its quality, providing the user with a high level of efficiency and enormous benefits. The machines are popular due to their sturdiness, ease of handling and precise operation. Reliable, durable machines are now a must in a modern processing plant with often intricate and complex working processes.
Great store is set by product innovations. MAJA's technical staff are constantly seeking customer contact, so that together they can work out product solutions which are geared towards individual requirements and guarantee optimum use to the benefit of the customer.
