1967: Marc Bidaux set up the pest control company PCBE (wood chemical protection of the east) specialized in treatments against wood destroying organisms in Belfort, France.
1969: Firstly, to boost the effectiveness of his WDO 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. Then, the MABI injector for termite treatment was internationally patented and launched on the French market.
1970: The CTBA (Technical Center for Wood and Furniture) – a French organization – validates and recommends the new MABI injection system. It helps get rid of termites, wood destroying beetles and fungi thanks to its high efficiency. As a result, 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. In other words, the creation of specialized equipment is meant to protect all types of construction. Thus, other kind of injectors were designed, in particular for treating masonries and concrete slabs.
80s: The company changed its name to 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.
