Company history

Pioneers of industrial automation

A company with tradition

The beginnings

Since its founding in 1996, Marine- und Automatisierungstechnik Rostock GmbH, also known as MAR, has been successfully operating with innovative and economical solutions for its customers. The Managing Directors Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Markert, Dipl.-Ing. Rainer Schau and Dipl.-Ing. Dietmar Schedler have established a competence center for industry-wide industrial automation, production management systems and maritime systems in northern Germany with the engineers, software developers and technicians employed here.


Since 2009, MAR has been at home on the technology campus in Rostock-Warnemünde and serves customers all over Europe, Asia, Africa and Central America.

Strategic partnership

In order to be able to offer an even broader range of services and to expand the customer base, MAR concluded a strategic partnership with  SEAR, a Rostock company specializing in energy, building and industrial technology, at the beginning of 2014. Both companies have already cooperated with each other in the past and can offer their customers innovative and cost-effective solutions thanks to the merger.

We act responsibly

In our daily work we act according to the fundamental principles of ethics and morality:

  • We develop sustainable solutions in which the interests of man, nature and the environment always come first.
  • Even in times of economic success, we do not forget our social responsibility and commit ourselves accordingly.
  • The ten leitmotives for honorable merchants decided by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Rostock in 2012 are an important guideline for our actions.
