These four operational departments are able to integrate their creativity, expertise and production capabilities to respond to customers’ needs.
Maguin has built up over many years reference technologies and the reputation for high quality equipment and services.
Our aim is to reinforce this image by continuous development in our markets while responding to changing customer needs.
Maguin is one of two core businesses owned by Moret Industries and is located at Saint-Quentin, northern France, the other is the industrial pump specialist Ensival Moret International.
The Company was founded in 1843 and originally manufactured lime. By the early 20th century Maguin had secured a worldwide reputation as a supplier of equipment and complete plants to the sugar and beet distillery industry. The events of two world wars caused Maguin to concentrate on the European market, especially in the provision of sugar beet equipment. By the early 2000s the business had evolved and developed to meet an increasingly complex industrial demand by acquiring companies with synergetic activities – FDI (1994),Maguin-Chelmza (1998), Promill (1998), Interis (2000), Remex (2001).
These companies have been fully integrated into the Maguin structure and organised into four divisions – Sugar, Drying, Environment, Alcohol. This diversity of activity allows Maguin to offer a wide range of technology and expertise, which covers all aspects from processing of raw materials to finished product. The sharing of this know-how across the company guarantees Maguin a long term future.
