1967 : Marc Bidaux set up the pest control company PCBE (wood chemical protection of the east) in Belfort, France.
1969 : To significantly improve the effectiveness of this treatments, Marc Bidaux invented the first plastic injector with a non-return valve to treat wood in-depth. Soon, his main competitors asked him to supply them with this revolutionary system. The Mabi injector was internationally patented and launched on the French market.
1970: The new injection system received professional accreditation by CTBA (Technical Center for Wood and Furniture), a French organization which validates and recommends it for its high efficiency. Since then, the major European organizations have adopted the Mabi system as the most effective curative method against wood-destroying organisms. As the sales soared, the company set aside the application to focus exclusively on the design, manufacture and marketing of a range of specialized equipment for protecting all types of construction. Thus were designed other kind of injectors, in particular for treating masonries and soils.
80s: The company was now called MABI after the name of its creator, Marc Bidaux. To increase the export sales, a German company was set up, Mabi Baustoffschutz GmbH. Not to mention the growing participations in exhibitions everywhere in Europe.
