The company operates a network of 37 branches in Germany, Poland and Luxembourg. The roll out of the business has gained significant momentum under Odewald’s ownership having acquired eight local competitors over the last five years. Mateco is headquartered in Stuttgart and has over 550 employees. For 2012, Mateco is forecast to generate revenues of around €90m.
