MIG mbH was founded in mid-2001 by Dipl.-Chem. Ing. Burkhard Brandt und Concrete Engineer Wolfgang Bonder, both held high ranking positions in their previous careers in the chemical industry. The company’s goal was to develop innovative new products specifically for construction chemistry. A particular highlight is the development of chromate reducer systems for hydraulically setting compositions. Burkhard Brandt was the first to use stannous sulfate to reduce chromates in cements, at the same time presenting new analytical possibilities to detect chromium VI, thus paving the way for an innovative era of chromate reduction. Wolfgang Bonder was responsible for product launch, ensuring that individual customers have the possibility to integrate this new technology into their own operation. From the very start, customers’ problems and possibilities as opposed to our research and development have been the focus of MIG. Further areas of research include defoamers and deaerators for the chemical industry. MIG’s innovative product range also comprises new technical products for energy conservation and CO2 emission reductions, increasing quality of living in buildings through unique coating systems. MIG continues to make a contribution to the health of people in their diet by using trace element fertilizers for agriculture. As a technologically forward-thinking company, MIG also engages in high tech development for water treatment and utilizing and processing natural substances in the chemical industry. MIG boasts a virtually global distribution and purchasing network as well as a number of joint ventures particularly in Asia.
