The original concept behind the founding of MTG Marinetechnik was born in 1966 from the German Federal Ministry of Defence’s desire to bring together the strategic knowledge surrounding the whole concept of naval ships at a point away from production sites. The aim was to create a center of expertise for maritime concerns in order to identify and develop optimum solutions, away from the economic pressure of production utilization levels.

From the very start, the company was designed as an independent and self-sufficient system house. For this reason MTG Marinetechnik soon took on tasks, not only for the German Navy, but also for other navies and industrial companies.
