Macq: A success story

In 1946, spectography equipment was created, which opened a path to industrial electronics. In 1961, the first digital voltmeter was designed in Europe: a widely used innovation for studying Concorde structures.

1968: Yvon Macq succeeded Clément Macq.

1968 is a key date in the company’s history, with the design of a first generation of programmable logic controllers.

1983: UNIX became the Macq operating system. This is an open and efficient system applied to road traffic management, smart buildings and industrial process management.

1997: François Macq took control over the company’s destiny. This very year, Macq obtained its ISO 9001 certification.

2001: iCAR was created: a range of integrated products for vehicle registration plate recognition, counting and classification.
