MD’s 40th anniversary.

40 years ago, our company was founded under the name of “G. Merx Elektrotechnik“. The company started with 20 employees and a production area of 100 m2 in Buchbach. In 1980, the company moved into the new building in the Waldkraiburg industrial area. In the following years, the company grew steadily.

Since 25 years, we are a subsidiary of the Heidenhain Group.

In 1989, the company that had been renamed to “Merx, Diem & Co. GmbH“ and had 350 employees, was integrated into the HEIDENHAIN Group and the company name was changed to “MD ELEKTRONIK GmbH“. Four years later, the decision was made to establish a production site in the Czech Republic. Three years later, the company received the first ISO certification according to DIN/EN ISO9001.
 

20 years ago, we established our first contacts to the automotive industry.

In 1994, an important step in our company history took place – we received our first order from the automotive industry. This was the beginning of our sustainable growth in the automotive sector. Thanks to the gained automotive references, we were able to acquire additional customers in the following years.
