Innovation Center



At Maccaferri we strongly believe in the innovation

Innovation in terms of solutions and products is an important part of the evolution of successful companies. Since our foundation, nearly 140 years ago, we work every day to find better solutions for our clients at every degree of latitude and longitude. We make innovation happen around the world by sharing our knowledge capital to increase the return on investment of clients and partners, and we offer ongoing support to establish relations built on solid trust. This is us: Maccaferri.

We were founded on innovation, by inventing Gabions. Since then, we have never stopped inventing better solutions. Innovation is rooted in our identity and we are always on the lookout for new and better solutions and ways of enhancing them. Our innovation stems from a strategic factor: knowledge.

Maccaferri wanted to create a centre of excellence entirely dedicated to Research and Development; we selected Bolzano. It is here that we develop the next generation of Maccaferri products and also to cultivate the best innovation and support to our clients.
