Reliable, punctual and always to high quality. MARTIN GmbH in Braz in Vorarlberg represent these values when the 70 employees produce excavator attachments. The company was founded by Josef Martin in 1961. Since that day, the inspiration for steel and large construction machines has breezed through its rooms. Today, six trainees work at the site in Braz and ensure that the proven MARTIN quality is maintained.

Hydraulic couplings, Quick Coupler systems, excavator buckets and grabbers. All these components are exposed to extreme conditions. At MARTIN, it is therefore ensured as early as the development phase that the technology and the high-precision of the products work faultlessly even in harsh working environments. It is this area of conflict that challenges the technicians and makes the work for MARTIN GmbH so fascinating.

And thanks to the high-quality materials, MARTIN products also have an above-average service life. To ensure optimised customer support, MARTIN providers all dealers with the best possible training. Enabling them to solve any difficulties or problems that arise without delay.
