About us

The Wilhelm & Karl Maybach Foundation's mission is to inspire people by showing Maybach engineering and design heritage. The Foundation's work is built on the heritage of Founder Ulrich Schmid-Maybach's great-grandfather, Wilhelm Maybach, who was raised in a progressive orphanage in Germany after his parents' death. Through a stroke of luck, his math and drawing potential was spotted by Gottlieb Daimler, who became his mentor. With Daimler's support and guidance, Maybach developed a revolutionary engine that launched the modern automotive era and fundamentally changed the world of transportation. Currently, plans are being made to develop a museum in Germany and a train Heritage tour.
