Our company

MG2MIX history

In 1989, Maurice Gétain and Gérard Maignan, both animal nutrition technicians, decide to create an independent company, placing emphasis on the quality of work and human relationships. The initials of these two founders are behind the name of MG2MIX.

Maurice Getain

Gérard Maignan

At the end of 2015, Maurice Gétain and Gérard Maignan passed MG2MIX along to six senior executives of the company, including two of their children: Nathalie, Olivier, Vincent, Denis, Mickaël and Nicolas. The new management team takes responsibility for the company in keeping with the values introduced by the two founders. Since this date, the MG2MIX development has been continuing, with each year new countries served and new projects in progress. A new production tower was commissioned in 2020, allowing MG2MIX to double its manufacturing capacity.
