MAY Parasols: Quality and Perfection made in Germany

Our family business was founded in 1983 by Anton May and his wife Gertrud May. “The Art lies in fulfilling the wishes of the client” - with this guiding principle from Anton May, associated with creativity, innovativeness and consistently striving for better solutions, the MAY brand was able to establish itself quickly in the market and became a term for high quality parasols for special requirements.

MAY connects Tradition with Innovation

Today, three decades after its founding, the family business is run by the second generation, the brothers Karl-Heinz May and Klaus-Peter May, and combines tradition with modern management. Over 100 employees produce in the upper-Swabian Betzenweiler parasols of the highest quality, tailored to the needs of our customers, flexible in function and design and with continuously innovative ideas.

Meeting customer wishes from Art

For over 30 years, the MAY brand represents premium parasols. We exclusively specialize in parasols, and have perfected their production over the years. Our recipe for success is the consistent implementation of creative parasol ideas in everyday-use, technical solutions. We attach great importance in the production process to a high proportion of in-house production.

The result is high-quality all-weather parasols made of aluminum, which day after day prove themselves a thousand times over in action - and not just in Germany but worldwide.

This success is the accumulated know-how from decades of concentration on parasols on the one hand, and our motivated employees who guarantee the implementation of our corporate philosophy on the other. From production to processing to service - Parasols from MAY are the perfect providers of shade.

The motivation for our work is you as customer: Our goal is to offer you the highest parasol quality and perfect products to go with your parasol. This applies to both the technology of our products as well as for the design of our parasols.

Discover the diversity of our parasol collection and experience the quality of our products - throughout the year, because with MAY-parasol it is always summer!
