In 1920, at a time when craftsmanship was a matter of pride, Max Gottlieb Meinel established MAXIMA in Markneukirchen, Germany. In the early 1950s, MAXIMA built a new plant in Geretsried for the production of monofilament nylon fishing line. MAXIMA’s state-of-the-art Research & Development and manufacturing facility is nestled in the hills of Bavaria. Using the most advanced technology, MAXIMA manufactures the highest quality fishing line. Our dedication to quality, focus on customer satisfaction, exemplary engineering, and continuous product development are the basic elements in every spool of line.
