When Dr. Qilin Fu was a doctoral student at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and studied the effects of vibration on machining, he saw that the technology had a lot of room for improvement. Qilin proceeded to study different systems and materials that could be applied to the problem. In 2015, a breakthrough occurred with the use of polymers. The following year, Qilin and his partners applied for a patent and started MAQ. The name of the Stockholm-based company comes from the first names of the co-founders: Mihai Nicolescu, Amir Rashid and Qilin Fu.
In 2017, MAQ was formed and early investors were secured to fund our growth path. Although we’re a relatively new company, our breadth and depth of technical and market knowledge, along with the passion of our co-founders, advisors and investors, have put us on equal footing with competitors that have been around for a long time.
