In the 1950s, Marabu complemented its package of artists' and graphics' paints by
adding the first screen printing inks. Today, this range has been further developed
to address the great variety of applications in screen but also pad and digital
printing. The original field of artists' and graphics' paints then matured into
a range of paints for graphics, school, and hobby painting. A look to Marabu company
history reaches as far back as the year 1859. In this year, Albert Martz founded
a retail shop in Stuttgart, Germany offering supplies for artists and architects.
Only a few years later, the production of the first drawing utensils, drafting equipment
and artists' paints followed. In 1909, the company’s products obtained the ''Marabu''
trademark. After more than 50 years of successful development, a (building) site
was purchased in 1914 in Tamm near Ludwigsburg to cater to the increased production.
Production started in 1918. Today, “Marabu Products” are worldwide known brand in
more than 70countries. “Marabu has intensively promoted the development of pad and
screen printing through its own innovative products and application techniques.
