History & heritage

MAG45 was founded in 1948 as an internal MRO warehousing and logistics specialist for the Dutch manufacturing giant Philips. The company was acquired by private equity in 2004 and has expanded rapidly, organically and through acquisition, championing Integrated Supply with an inquisitive and entrepreneurial spirit.

Since 2016 MAG45 has been part of the Euro 1.7 billion, 3,000 employee, Danish-listed sourcing and services company Solar Group. Both Philips as a customer, and a number of our key suppliers, have been with MAG45 from the very beginning.

MAG45 currently has a global footprint with offices across Europe, Asia and North America, and is accredited to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Our growing portfolio of clients is centered on leading, often multinational, companies in the high tech machine building, medical technology, pharmaceutical, consumer electronics production, and food & beverage/FMCG vertical sectors.

In 2017 we joined forces with the Italian Savone followed by the celebration of our 70 years anniversary in 2018.
