HÄNEL, a manufacturing and trading company, was founded in 1921. The young company devoted itself to creating solutions for employee protection in high-risk work environments.
Since its founding, the family held company has been striving to create a model of today’s corporate philosophy: The customer is the focal point and their satisfaction is top priority.
In subsequent decades Hänel established globally successful products in the field of protective clothing and radiation protection equipment under the MAVIG trademark.
In 1983 the foundation for the company’s successful future was established with the opening of the new factory premises in the Moosfeld industrial area of Munich. Spacious production and office areas provided room for further development and innovation.
In 1999 the uniform identification of company and product was achieved with the renaming of Hänel GmbH to MAVIG GmbH.
Since 2006 MAVIG has been developing and distributing the world’s first applicable confocal laser scan microscope – VivaScope®. For the first time, this system allows for an optical biopsy in real time.
Even today MAVIG is still a fully independent and family owned company.
