In Pamiers in 1963, chemical engineer Paul MAES developed the first ready-to-use glycerophtalic paints.
53 years on, this desire to innovate is as strong as ever!
Paul MAES has handed the reins over to his son, Benoit MAES. With the same desire to innovate and anticipate, Benoit is following the course set by his father for the past 50 years. He leads the international industrial group MAESTRIA which has remained independent.
