Morath – a success story from the Black Forest! Deep-rooted, family-run, innovative.

The traditional company was founded in 1967 by Franz and Waltraud Morath. Since 2008, it has been managed in the second generation by sons Daniel and Wolfgang.

Morath is a leading provider in all hard-to-reach areas of drilling and anchor technology. Morath stands for the pioneering and entrepreneurial spirit for which the Black Forest is famous. This is the birthplace of great inventions. Created with dedication and passion, perseverance and precision. Our employees reflect this, too. They are committed to these values. With our worldwide network, we also maintain an international approach.

A future needs a past!

Our corporate culture breathes life into traditional values. These values are the roots of our origins. The long-term cooperation partnerships with our customers are built upon this foundation.

Together with them, we are working to achieve a forward-looking position and steady growth. We are inspired by our customers and interact with them at eye level. This boosts our creativity and competence. Extensive expansions in our office and production facilities in 2016 attest to the high importance of our location in Germany.

We are called upon to make the future possible. We are building our future on you – build yours on us!

Social commitment

We do not seek a corporate policy that seeks only market share and profit. Solidarity, social responsibility, forthrightness and steadfastness play a large role in what we do.

That’s why we are involved on behalf of organisations, regional associations, families, children and senior citizens. For us, the focus is not upon media presence but rather upon providing uncomplicated support for the needs of everyday life.
