48 years in electronic engineering

With a team of 50 in 2020, Maatel has been specializing in electronic engineering for over 45 years. Located in Moirans, near Grenoble, our core activity is electronic engineering. We provide a range of customized electronic services for the industrial sector in France and the international market.

Customized electronic services

We provide a complete design service for electronic products, their industrialization, then mass production.

Our solid expertise is put to good use in many industrial sectors including ENERGY, TRANSPORT, CONSTRUCTION and INDUSTRIAL MARKING.

We are particularly active in the MEDICAL sector, with over 30 years of experience in the field.

MAATEL has ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certification, and provides additional support to our customers with expertise for FDA product accreditation for the American health market.

Scientific Instrumentation: 15 years in the public and private sectors

In 2002, in addition to our electronic service, Maatel began working in the field of scientific instrumentation.

With the Arinax brand, our scientific instrumentation division designs, produces and sells cutting-edge technological equipment for research in the structural biology field.

This development strategy is the result of a rich working relationship between Maatel and the EMBL, a public European institute which conducts research in biology and health.

Maatel has been working hand-in-hand with the EMBL Grenoble instrumentation team for over 15 years. Arinax equipment is internationally recognized for their work in the synchrotron field and structural biology laboratories.

Our Ambitions

Since our creation in 1976, Maatel has met many challenges, and gained skills, technological expertise and regulatory knowledge for our different sectors of activity.

Growing our industrial and medical expertise

Enhancing our services and developing our expertise are key to our business development approach.

Based on our strong expertise, our ambition is now to develop innovative solutions to meet new requirements for connectivity in the medical and industrial sectors.

Recruitment and training are essential to our success in this development, as is our network of industrial partnerships. Our most recent collaboration is the European project SERENE IoT which involves both industrials and public hospitals.

Developing our portfolio of scientific instrumentation products

World leader for diffraction equipment for structural biology with synchrotron applications, we now plan to extend the Arinax range to offer preparation platforms for protein crystals via CrystalDirect®, the latest result of our collaboration with the EMBL.

Our plan is to use our expertise and experience to continue developing our range of Arinax products and invest in new research markets via stable innovative partnerships.
