Maccaferri-Company

Who: Global Engineers

130 years ago we invented Gabions and dramatically changed civil engineering’s landscape. We are still changing it today. We work everyday, with 130 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 nearly 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: 130 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.

Maccaferri in Brazil and Latin America: the value of global design and local manufacture

Maccaferri Brazil is the reference country for the whole of Latin America. We have seven units in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Recife, Novo Hamburgo, Jundiai, Curitiba and Goiania), two laboratories, one of which is a design centre with 15 engineers that develops projects for all Latin America, and offices in Ecuador, Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, El Salvador, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic. Chile, Honduras, Nicaragua,Uruguay and Paraguay are managed through distributors.

In 1974, in Brazil (Jundiaí-SP), we opened Maccaferri first plant in Latin America and we intensified our activities in this market, based on our expertise and experience in global centennial and solutions for geotechnical engineering, hydraulics and protection of environment. Today in Latin America we have factories also in Argentina, Peru and Costarica, maintaining technical and commercial units in other Latin American countries.
In Latin America we operate in several market segments providing solutions for environmental engineering, structural engineering, wires and fences. Technical competence is our differential in the relationship with the market. Our staff with over 120 engineers assists clients through partnerships, seeking and finding solutions for technical-economical high performance and using the technologies provided by the company.

Maccaferri is a point of reference in Latin America for DT mesh solutions, but the recent diversification process has shown a strong increase in market share also in Geosynthetics. What differentiates Maccaferri Brazil most from our competitors in the Geosynthetics market is the fact that we do our own manufacturing locally. Having two laboratories allows us to show clients “hands-on” the benefits of their products. Also some other Maccaferri subsidiaries in Latin America manufacture DT products.

What: from Design to Development

At Maccaferri we do not simply sell products: we provide better solutions – identifying, addressing and responding to the specific needs of each client. Maccaferri is a partner who works alongside clients from the start of the project, maximising value for money through technical expertise and an extensive portfolio of quality products.

Our better solutions start from the design phase of the project, with the simple aim of solving a problem. Then, we proceed through all the stages of development, in close synergy with our subsidiaries; manufacturing, designing and installing solutions throughout the world. Our better solutions are always the end result of a close-knit, multi-level integration of Maccaferri’s headquarters in Italy, local subsidiaries and clients’ needs.

How: Excellent Sustainability

Environmental protection is an essential factor for us. Maccaferri’s solutions are better also because we design and develop them with an eye on quality of life and on preserving the environment and our communities for future generations. These same principles of respect and integrity are mirrored within our organizational structure.
We are ethically engaged. We have always stood out for the reliability, transparency and professionalism of our management. Our employees follow an unconditional ethical code of conduct that maintains and strengthens behavioural integrity and transparency in all operations, while abiding by all pertinent laws.
