Who: Global Engineers
In the 19th century, we invented Gabions and dramatically changed civil engineering’s landscape. We are still changing it today. We work everyday, with 140 years of our history, to find better solutions for our clients at every degree of latitude and longitude. We make innovation happen around the world, we share our knowledge capital to multiply 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 are a global company, with more than 70 subsidiaries operating in 5 continents, with an on-site presence in more than 100 countries, and over 3000 employees: we are highly-specialized professionals trained in designing and developing complex solutions in the civil engineering, geotechnical and environmental construction markets. Our worldwide network grows through innovation and diversification of its sectors of activity and through an increasing range of high quality and environmentally-friendly products and applications.
We do not simply sell products: we strive to be the leading technical reference for designing and developing advanced projects. We are strongly committed to solving our clients’ problems by providing better solutions through attentive listening, innovation and collaboration.
To meet the challenges of the future, we have a very strong asset to rely on: 140 years of documented history, starting from Raffaele Maccaferri’s stroke of genius who in 1879 invented the modern Gabion, all the way to the current worldwide network operating in multiple markets. Today we are the undisputed leader in the manufacturing and supply of gabions and associated wire mesh products to the global construction industry.
Inspired by the ambition to solve even more complex problems, our expansion goes on: today we produce a wide range of geosynthetics including geogrids and geocomposites in numerous factories around the world. We are always striving for innovation. We keep searching for constant improvement. We are Maccaferri.
Back in 1950’s when the Maccaferri group thought of venturing in ASIA they operated through an UK based company called River and Sea Gabions and this company was established in Singapore. From here onwards Maccaferri group felt that there is a need for direct presence in this vast region and eventually formed a liaison office named Maccaferri ASIA . Those days products were promoted through various distributors with in the south East Asian region and various technical services wre rendered through this ASIA office. Eventually after the establishment of Maccaferri Indonesia this hub office was moved to Indonesia and later on got moved to Malaysia after the establishment of Maccaferri Malaysia.
Maccaferri ASIA under its current structure operates from Petaling Jaya, Selangor and is attached to Maccaferri Malaysia. This hub office is consisting of highly professional and well experienced technical and product support team, which extends support to various subsidiaries in this region for special projects, development of new and innovative solutions and product range. Along with this it also caters to the markets where Maccaferri doesn’t have their own direct presence through a subsidiary. This includes countries like Srilanka, Myanmar, Singapore, Cambodia, Thailand, Bangladesh, Brunei, Laos, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
With a strong techno commercial team this office could cater to all the needs of the client in terms of providing with the most effective technically and commercially viable solution using innovative and customised product range.
