The early years
MAES was founded in the 1960s by Jozef (Jef) Maes. Back then, it was still a local company that sold Beverol-Oil lubricants to garages and industry. Later the range was expanded with gas oil for private individuals.
The step to petrol stations
In the years that followed MAES gained momentum, until eventually the entire range of fuels belonged to the offer. In the 1970s, MAES opened its first free pumps. In the 1980s Dirk and Luc Maes first strengthened the business, and that was the starting signal for the expansion of a local network of petrol stations under his own name “Maes”. In 2013, almost 40 stations in the provinces of Antwerp and Flemish Brabant were taken over from Esso and since then the number of stations has grown steadily to the current number of almost 300 stations.
In 2018 MAES modernises its corporate identity and logo without forgetting the roots with the past. Did you know that with the MAES fuel card you can refuel at almost 1700 stations in the Benelux? You can also come to us for any type of fuel. So in addition to diesel and petrol, LPG, CNG and electricity. In the second quarter of 2018, MAES is launching the MAES Mobility Card, which allows companies to provide their employees with one card with all their mobility-related services. We are also a specialist in AdBlue (r) that we supply from many of our filling stations but also in bulk or through our AdBlue Proximity concept. In addition to supplying fuel, we are also very skilled in the installation of storage tanks. Do you already have a storage tank? Then we can check your tank if it still meets the requirements. In our petrol stations or delivered to your company you have the full range of lubricants from Total available. Today MAES belongs to the top of independent energy players in Belgium.
