Our history

When the former M&C Products Analysentechnik GmbH was founded in 1985 by four experienced engineers, a development started towards establishing a globally operating medium-sized group of companies that is continuously growing.

From the very beginning, M&C concentrated on the field of extractive gas sampling and gas conditioning and has consistently retained this highly focused business orientation until today. Starting with the independent development of a wide range of products, the offering was soon completed by project planning and engineering of complete analysis systems for special applications.

Since its foundation, M&C has become a strong market partner for customer companies over several development stages. The M&C sales companies in important trade countries and regions also play an important role. They have developed well on account of their expert know-how, their highly qualified services and the resulting good image of the companies and their products.
