MAGEBA starts developing in the product range of weaving and small machines.
1984/1985 – building of a new production hall close to Werk I. In the 80’s the first CNC-controlled manufacturing machine produced by SHW was purchased.
Additional purchase of a new building with a production hall in the direct neighborhood of the original building. Today this building is called Werk II and creates room for the office and administration departments, as well as for demonstration and presentation rooms and the installation of small and weaving machines.
In the following years the original growth of the company proceeded. More machine sectors have been included so that today MAGEBA has a vast product program ranging from warping, weaving, finishing and making-up.
The first machines with SPS control were delivered, equipped with a modem for online support.
Additional production hall was built, close to Werk I for spraying, welding, blasting and coating.
Oliver Stang, son of Hans-Peter Stang, joined the company and the general management.
New State of the art manufacturing machines have been acquired in order to optimize and improve the production process. By these CNC controlled machines the developments of the MAGEBA technical department are realized into practical solutions.
In support of an optimized capacity utilization of the new machinery MAGBEBA implemented the department “Lohnfertigung” in 2003 and offers manufacturing components/ metal parts for private people and companies.
Anna-Katharina Stang, Hans-Peter Stang’s daughter, joined the company.
