PRODUCTS AND SERVICES FOR THE INFRASTRUCTURE AND BUILDING SECTORS

mageba is a globally leading supplier of structural bearings, expansion joints as well as other products and services for the infrastructure and building sectors. The familyrun company therefore serves an attractive and growing niche market. Structural bearings ensure the load transmission between a bridge’s superstructure and pillars; expansion joints absorb the longitudinal movements in bridges that occur through temperature variations and traffic load.

mageba has installed bearings and expansion joints in more than 20,000 constructions around the world, including some of the longest and most heavily-used bridges. Founded in 1963, mageba is considered to be a leading innovative provider in this technologically and qualitatively high-end segment of the market.

POTENTIAL FOR DEVELOPMENT

Seismic protection is one of the business areas to be expanded in future. Many countries have budgeted additional funding for projects in this area. mageba provides structural dampers for these applications that not only provide protection in the case of earthquakes, but also absorb noise and vibrations. In addition, DBAG aims to support the company’s further international growth, for example in North and South America.

2016 FINANCIAL YEAR

As a prerequisite for further growth, a change in the family-run company’s reporting system to comply with corporate governance geared to the capital markets was initiated. At the same time, a project was set up to improve the company’s operational performance. mageba profited from state-run infrastructure programmes in several countries and posted a large volume of incoming orders. As a result, revenues and earnings will clearly exceed the previous year’s figures.

OUTLOOK AND OBJECTIVES

The company will continue to work on the projects agreed on at the beginning of the investment and above all pursue international growth. Based on the good order backlog, the basically positive market outlook and various initiatives to ensure further growth, management expects the company’s revenues and earnings to increase further in 2017.
