People with visions are the one who are behind maxit. Likewise, it was the vision of an entrepreneur to establish a market position with simple means and commitment, who was in search of people like them in Europe.
“Our particular strength lies in the high technical level that we have established. Even the density of our locations plays a deciding role. With this we can reach our customers in the shortest time and always guarantee supply capability”, said Hans-Dieter Groppweis, Managing Director of the Franken Maxit Group, which was established in collaboration with Bergmann Kalk.
For decades maxit has stood for a multitude of products and services for the construction industry and the building trade. In 1978, it began with three employees in Azendorf as a collaboration between the lime works Bergmann and Mathis; over the last 45 years Franken Maxit has developed into an international operating company with almost 800 employees at nine locations and a revenue of approx. 190 million euros. Today, the dry mortar factory in Azendorf alone belongs to the largest companies of the sector in the entire federal territory.
The Franken maxit Group supplies the material on a daily basis to realise the visions held by architects and construction companies worldwide. All over the earth unique works are being erected with our building materials. Created in cooperation with experienced employees, innovative ideas and future-oriented companies.
Maxit produces dry mortar and mixtures of binding agents, aggregates and additives in the most modern plants for the construction industry and provides an extensive product programme for the areas of shell construction, development and façades. Whether an interior or exterior plaster, coloured plaster finishing coat, paints, floor or thermal insulating systems: day-to-day more than 3,500 tonnes of plaster, screed and paint leave the production facilities of the Franken Maxit Group in various containers, as bagged goods in small and large amounts or in our own developed silo system.
The newest technology and computer-controlled mixing plants for dry plaster, dry mortar and screed provide the guarantee for the best product at a consistent quality. The Franken maxit Group presents themselves with this challenge anew on a daily basis. Qualified staff ensure appropriate product safety in our in-house laboratories, continually develop new materials and thereby take account of the requirements with regard to energy-saving and environmental friendliness.
For a smooth, on-schedule process of work at the construction site, maxit provides the silo. From the application of the screed over the concrete work through to the wall plaster. The maxit trained employees take-over handling on-site. With the silo technology, maxit has been able to develop an innovative solution for every construction industry demand. More than 4,500 dry mortar silos in Bavaria, Saxony, Thuringia and Czech Republic ensure the leading position for supply of dry mortar products.
Nine branches with centrally positioned production facilities and careful warehousing ensure for a prompt delivery of maxit products.
With the main factory in Azendorf in the Kulmbach district and the Nuremberg branch, the Franken Maxit Group supplies the whole of the northern Bavarian area. From Würzburg to Ansbach. Around the clock. And 365 days of the year. The southern Bavarian area is supplied by the factories in Plattling and Niederwinkling. At both of these locations the smooth development of contracts of the Lower Bavaria region and Upper Palatinate, and the corresponding training of customers from the construction sector is ensured. maxit süd alone currently employs around 300 people.
With its factories in Leupahn and Dresden, maxit Baustoffwerke covers the Saxon region. Here, more than 80 employees serve customers from the entire construction and trade sector. In the Thuringia region, two production sites ensure the smooth supply of our customers.
Just under 14 kilometres from the state capital, Erfurt, you will find our factory in Thörey. With the maxit building material factory in Krölpa, taken over in trust in 1990, situated in southern Thuringia, there is an important supplier of raw products such as gypsum, FGD gypsum and anhydrite. The extraction of gypsum and/or anhydrite is facilitated both underground and above ground. A team of experienced miners ensure the careful extraction of natural resources. The Krölpa factory facilitates up to 100,000 tonnes of anhydrite per year, which is used in powder form as a raw material for the manufacture of flowing screed.
Since 1994, the Franken Maxit Group has expanded to Czech Republic. Around 60 workers supplie the Karlsbad, Marienbad and Franzensbad region, the greater area of Pilsen right through to the capital city. In Beroun, almost 20 kilometres west of Prague, a new dry mortar factory was inaugurated in 2014.
