Business Profile

Succes story:

The origins of the company go back to a traditional locksmith’s – the family business Büttner Stahl- und Maschinenbau founded in 1947. MIAS as a production company in its current form came into being in 1985. Since 1989, MIAS has been steadily working toward expansion into international markets. In 2015, MIAS was purchased by Jungheinrich AG, where it has continued as an independent brand. Today the company employs more than 400 staff members at four locations and, as an OEM, supplies stacker cranes and telescopic forks to customers all over the world.


MIAS has a clear vision: providing general contractors and system integrators with the best possible support when it comes to load handling attachments and stacker cranes in intralogistics. From finding and developing a solution to production and implementation right through to service and maintenance.

  • MIAS Hungary, Gyöngyös, Hungary

  • MIAS INC. Material Handling Systems & Service - Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.
