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.
Maccaferri (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. was established in 1994.
Maccaferri (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. was established in 1994 but Maccaferri’s presence in this part of the world had long been recorded, tracing back to the 1950’s when we were still known as “Malaya”. Maccaferri products were distributed by local distributors to West and East Malaysia, and even to neighboring countries such as Brunei and Singapore. Maccaferri Malaysia currently operates from Petaling Jaya, Selangor and Senawang, Negeri Sembilan, which houses its sales office and factory, respectively. We have a highly professional sales and technical team to support and ensure that our customers’ requirements are met. Our
customized software is the result of our research and development activities through countless years of experience globally. They are used to study and propose solutions to various environmental engineering challenges. We are not merely material supplier but rather a complete solution provider in the areas of erosion control, river bank protection, retaining structures, channel lining, rock fall protection and many more. These are supported by our wide range of double-twist wire mesh and geosynthetics products. We recognize the importance in maintaining consistency and quality in our products and to endorse this awareness, our Company is certified to ISO 9001:2000 since 1997. In fact, we are the first local double-twist wire mesh manufacturer that is accredited to such quality standards. Our commitment extends to the rest of the world where most of our factories worldwide have also attained the ISO Standards. Maccaferri seeks out the right solutions to each specific case to ensure the lowest possible environmental impact and the preservation of ecological balance. Projects are often being monitored and we have worldwide network of environmental professionals who are in constant touch with new advances in geo-technology and hydraulic engineering. Day and night, Maccaferri is at work where land and water meet.
