Masats celebrates 50th anniversary


Busworld exhibition in Kortrijk, from the 20th to 25th of October, was the location chosen by Masats to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its foundation, the purpose of which was to make people’s day to day easier with products to make public transport more accessible and comfortable. Its commitment to people is reflected in the company’s all-new slogan, “50 Years in your daily life”. The celebration took place among customers and friends on Monday and Tuesday at noon in Masats’s stand 209 in Hall 2.

Since its origin as a manufacturer of pneumatic equipment for buses, Masats has gradually expanded its product range with electric doors for road vehicles, bus ramps for people with reduced mobility and lifts for coaches. Masats has made a decisive commitment in recent years to the railway sector with a specific product line including electric on-board doors, steps and ramps for rolling stock. With its strategy to assist people in their daily needs, Masats took a major step in 2016 with the presentation of its new business sector – platform screen doors or PSD, aimed at making stations safer.

Masats is committed to active listening and maintaining a very close relationship with customers at all levels and achieving the utmost safety has always guided Masats throughout its history. The company currently offers doors which feature the highest levels of electrical and pneumatic safety and facilitate efficient access by people with reduced mobility.
