Mr Shahab Karimi, managing director, stated in the Tehran Times (July 31, 2010) that initial plans for the company were laid down in 2005 and after completing its development plan the PM plant was officially inaugurated this year.

Maad Sanat, which is already ISO-TS 16949 and ISO 9001 accredited, operates powder compacting presses ranging from 6 to 500 tons, sizing presses from 20 to 250 tons, mesh belt conveyor and high temperature (1350C) pusher furnaces, and hardening and steam treatment furnaces.
