What distinguishes us is what many people like about us: the highest quality, a long service life and innovative strength.

The MARTIN brand.
As strong as our machines.

When Otto Martin founded the company in 1922, he laid the foundations for the success of the MARTIN brand in the past, today and in the future. Since that time, generations of employees have ensured that the name MARTIN has become synonymous with the best quality, long service life and innovative strength of woodworking machines.
We have become the quality market leader in many countries of the world through groundbreaking inventions and the robust construction and durable quality of our machines.
We invented the sliding table saw with tiltable saw blade in 1959, and the sliding table saw with a saw blade tiltable on both sides made its debut in 2006. Our planer received a Good Industrial Design Award at the Hanover Fair in 1954. The unique composite frame was launched in 1983, followed by the TERSA cutter block standard in 1995 – MARTIN was the German licensee and made a significant contribution to its distribution. The T45 Contour was introduced in 2003 – it is still the only planer which can also profile. We caused great excitement with the introduction of the T26 in 1999, the first spindle moulder with a swivelling range of 2x 45°.
In addition to the standard machines, we have also been able to score points with our innovations: We have created enormous savings potentials in the window manufacturing industry with the new Quality Finishing through elimination of the intermediate varnish sanding.
We will continue to develop these and some other equally effective ideas for potential new customers and the keen MARTIN fans throughout the world.

Our products do what they promise.

Our brand and product philosophy consists of two simple but highly effective principles: We develop innovative and practical solutions for woodworking enterprises throughout the world. In the process, we combine practice-orientated functionality and ease of operation with timeless design and legendary longevity.
Since we have been working according to this system of principles for around 95 years, we can draw on a wealth of experience and expertise. We want to provide you with the perfect tool. A tool which is easy and safe to operate – and ensures the highest machining quality and thereby the sound basis for your business success.

Made in Germany and for you.

We bring quality to every place.

As individual as the brand: The people at MARTIN

Our company history is also the chronicle of success of the family which still owns 100 % of the company today. This family influences the fortunes of the company with a great sense of tradition and innovation and its deep-rooted connection with the Ottobeuren location and the people who work for the company.
A good example of the strong focus on social responsibility is our apprentice workshop, which has been in existence since the 70s. With an apprentice training ratio of more than 20 %, we have been well above the national average of 6 % for many years. Thanks to the sound training of young people in various technical and commercial occupations as well as a systematic further training programme, MARTIN can rely on highly motivated and excellently trained personnel – the basis for continuous innovation. In turn, the workforce shows its appreciation with a high average length of service with the company.
