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 injector for termite treatment 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. The picture above represents the booth at the well-known BATIMAT trade fair.
50 years of innovation from pest management professionnal to a global manufacturer
90s: Over the years, the company has increased its research on injection efficiency and the convenience for the user. An injector with a setter head was created which allowed insertion with a single hammer blow.
2000s: The company was taken over by Olivier Bidaux who brought a fresh new approach. A new generation of MABI injector was launched, more technical and aesthetic. It was further evidence of the technological leadership of MABI within the industry. Since then, thanks to its R&D department and a thorough knowledge of the field, the company is continuing to innovate and improve on the products it distributes worldwide. MABI has won numerous awards for its innovation policy and is now established as a leading equipment supplier for the pest control industry.
