markilux. A success story. 

On a beautiful day in June 1972 , the entrepreneur and visionary Justus Schmitz laid the foundation stone for a remarkable success story in Emsdetten, Westphalia. Under the brand name markilux - back then as a subsidiary of Schmitz-Werke - the new company designed and produced prefabricated awnings for terraces, balconies, windows and conservatories. 

After almost five decades and over 1,5 million awnings sold, markilux has developed into the leading manufacturer of innovative designer awnings in Germany. 

The spirit from the early days can still be felt today. Creativity, know-how, the fascination for the technical challenge, the discipline and the will to move something and to create something new make markilux a pioneer in the industry. 

Our success is shaped by the close proximity to our customers and employees, to the projects and processes. The cooperative partnership and the great commitment of each individual are part of this success. 

markilux sun protection systems can be found all over the world today and it makes us proud when we hear from our customers: "To sit in the shade on a beautiful day ..."
