1919

Mentoring Is Essential To The Maybach DNA. Wilhelm Maybach Became An Orphan At Age Ten And Subsequently Was Accepted At Bruderhaus Orphanage, A New Kind Of Institution In Which Manufacturing Simple Machines Was Part Of The Program. His Talents Were Discovered By The Head Of The Orphanage Who Then Enabled Him To Meet Gottlieb Daimler, His Most Important Collaborator In The Years That Followed. With His Groundbreaking Constructions, Wilhelm Created A Reputation Of His Own And Even Was Described As The King Of Designers At Only Age 43. Wilhelm Passed On This Heritage To His Son Karl Whom He Mentored On Technical Issues In Many Letters They Wrote Each Other. Having Founded A Company Of His Own, Karl Maybach Realized That To Ensure The Quality Of Work Required, Well Educated Workers Were Essential. As A Result, The ‘Lehrwerkstatt’ (Learning Workshop) Was Established In 1919 At Maybach Motorenbau, Setting An Example For Other German Companies To This Very Day. This Spirit Is Continued Today In The Maybach Foundation Where Mentoring Is Paramount To The Program.
