In the sixties two men Jan Maes and Maurice De Jonckheere met each other as colleagues in a machine company. At the end of that decade both decided to start a business in the sector of woodworking machinery and tools. The company Jan Maes specialized in the sales and logistics of renowned tooling manufacturers (e.g. AKE cutting and better). Jan Maes pioneered with the concept of service station and repair shop at that time quasi non-existent.
Maurice De Jonckheere on the other hand focused on the development and production of tooling and cutting materials. He was a true innovator.
Although operating in the same market they served both their specific customer segment.
After the market development of tungsten carbide tools in the seventies and eighties they both introduced diamond tooling (PCD Polycrystalline diamond) in the early nineties.
Both companies fully engaged in this technology as early adopters.
After the expansion in the nineties followed a market consolidation in the mid nillies.
Consequently followed the merger of both companies with the name Maes Jonker.
Due to the integration of the companies further growth and development continued. Maes Jonker nowadays is well diversified internationally operating company focused on custom made solutions and short delivery time.
Because of our history the company offers a lot of advantages: customer centric, innovation, development, own production and a stable and proven organisation.
The continuous investment in the human factor and machinery makes of Maes Jonker a pro-active and ready for the future company.
