05 MAHA’s 40 years – the technology- and market leader in the field of motor vehicle testing technology Together with his business partner Josef Schilling and a strong wife at his side, equipped with little more than a big dose of entrepreneurial spirit, technical ideas, and the will to succeed, Winfried Rauch started his successful career as an Allgäu businessman at the end of the 60’s. His tireless enthusiasm, his courage for entrepre- neurial risk in interaction with a reliable team in all company departments, from young apprentices right up to the top managerial group, has shaped MAHA in the past four decades and contributed substantially to its international success.

MAHA products and services are now managed by 24 dealerships in Germany. Globally today MAHA has foreign subsidiaries as well as a tight- knit dealer network in over 130 countries offering customers optimum service.
