The Mäder Group is an independent family-owned company, committed to human, ethical and honest values.
Since its foundation, the Mäder Group has been a formidable economic yet human adventure, led day after day by employees who share our values:
The men and women of the workforce are the Group’s most valuable resource. Each employee must feel this to be the case and that it is of personal concern in all circumstances.
MÄDER is aware that its employees are its most valuable asset and therefore pursues a proactive policy to promote equality between men and women. For example, the gender equality index for 2022 for MÄDER France is 87 points/100.
Trust is based on the quality of relationships, both internally and externally. Trust includes confidentiality of our customers' information. It is constantly built through our exchanges and actions with all our interlocutors.
For the Mäder Group, this means a common international spirit, but at the same time respecting the attachment of employees to their local work environment.
Customer satisfaction is at the core of the strategy. It concerns the Group’s partners as well as the Group’s technical and support processes.
The history of Mäder begins in 1993 in Marœuil, with the takeover of the CORSAIN company by the MOLINA family. In the years that followed, a major European and then international strategy was undertaken. This expansion was achieved through buyouts of companies selected for their high-tech products: Bolloré Jival, industrial coatings (especially for aviation), Soritec-Corsolac, coatings for plastics and general industries, Vernol, Vimo,...
The year 2000 marked a turning point in the history of the company, which acquired the Swiss Mäder Group that specialized in environmentally friendly coatings and resins. It was at this time that the Group changed its name to Mäder.
Over 20 years, the Group has become an independent European leader in high value-added coatings and resins. Today, it has subsidiaries in France, Germany, Switzerland, China and India.
